The revolutionary integration of research and teaching at the Center for Jazz Studies is powered by Columbia faculty who count among the leading figures in the field: George E. Lewis, Brent Hayes Edwards, Christopher Washburne, Robert O’Meally, Ann Douglas, Farah Jasmine Griffin, and John Szwed, the Center’s current Director. Core and affiliated Center faculty serve as sponsors, co-sponsors, and readers for doctoral students engaged in research related to jazz studies, working to create the next generation of scholars in the field.
