Audrey M. Wozniak is an ethnomusicologist who writes about discursive and material constructions of kinship and the state in urban diasporic contexts, particularly those of Turkey and China. Her research interests also include sociolinguistics, technology, state surveillance, and censorship. She has been conducting ethnographic and archival fieldwork in Istanbul and London since 2015, examining how the concept of discipline has shaped Turkish civil society through examining Turkish classical music choirs in the country and its diaspora. She is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Ethnomusicology at Harvard University and the Joint Fellow in Heritage Studies at Koç University's Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations and the British Institute at Ankara. She has also received a Fulbright-Hays DDRA Grant, an Orient-Institut Scholarship, and Cynthia Verba Merit Scholarship to support her research. 

Wozniak is an accomplished violinist and performer of Turkish and Western art music and her participation as a musician is an integral part of her research. For more information about her musical experience, please visit this link.
