Jonathan Sauceda is the Music and Performing Arts Librarian for Rutgers University and is responsible for collection development, teaching, and fostering collaboration between the libraries and the university community. His research areas focus on Latin American art and popular music from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries as well as information literacy instruction. Jonathan served as a coeditor of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 published by Bärenreiter. His article in the journal Popular Music and Society offers a nuanced interpretation of the narcocorrido, a Mexican popular song genre with references, either tacit or explicit, to drugs or drug smuggling. He has published work on the important place of Latin Americans in the history of rock and roll for ABC-CLIO as well as on Liszt’s reception of Schubert’s Schwanengesang cycle for Harmonia. A forthcoming article in Notes surveys the current state of the introductory graduate music research course. In his dissertation (in progress) Jonathan studies the literary currents that inform Felipe Boero’s opera, El matrero, which premiered in Buenos Aires in 1929, and assembles a critical edition of the work.
