  • Philip Duker, Associate Professor, Theory

    Associate Professor, Theory
    University of Delaware
    312 Amy E. du Pont Music Building
    Newark, DE 19716


    ​​Philip Duker joined the faculty at the University of Delaware in 2009 as an assistant professor in music theory. Dr. Duker completed his doctorate in music theory at the University of Michigan with a dissertation focusing on repetition in 20th-century music from an analytical and metatheoretical perspective. He is a former fellow at the University of Michigan’s Institute for the Humanities, an experience that broadened his interdisciplinary research interests.

    In addition to his degree in music theory, Dr. Duker holds a Diplôme in percussion from the Conservatoire National de France de la Région Rueil-Malmaison, Niveau Supérieur: Médaille d’Or, Premier Prix, and he graduate summa cum laude from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Philosophy.

    Dr. Duker has given papers at regional and national meetings of the Society for Music Theory in addition to presenting at the second International Conference on Music and Gesture in Manchester, England. His paper, “Resulting Patterns, Palimpsests, and ‘Pointing Out’ the Role of the Listener in Reich’s Drumming,” received the Dorothy Payne Best Graduate Student Paper Award from the Music Theory Society of the Mid-Atlantic, as well as honorable mention in the Arthur Komar award from Music Theory Midwest. Many of his research interests lie at the intersection between music and the humanities, including instrumental theatre and the visual/bodily aspects of performance, rhythm and temporality, philosophy and aesthetics, critical theory and the relationship between performance and analysis.
