Associate Professor of Musicology Halina Goldberg's research includes Chopin, music in Poland and Eastern Europe, performance practice, reception, and national constructs.

She is the editor of The Age of Chopin: Interdisciplinary Inquiries (Indiana University Press, 2004) and the author of Music in Chopin's Warsaw (Oxford University Press, 2008).

Recent and forthcoming articles deal with Chopin's chamber versions of his concert works, Chopin in Warsaw's salons, national constructs in Glinka's music, and the participation of nineteenth-century Jewish musicians in the articulation of Polish musical identity.

Her awards include the 1998 Wilk Award for Research in Polish Music (Polish Music Reference Center, University of Southern California, Los Angeles) and a 2005-06 Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad grant in Poland ("National Identity, Assimilation, and Jewishness in Nineteenth-Century Polish Music").

Goldberg has given invited lectures at the Polish Chopin Academy in Warsaw; Jagiellonian University, Kraków; the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Warsaw University; and the University of Rouen, France. Her radio interviews include WETA in Washington, D.C., Warsaw 2 in Poland, and Music Matters (BBC).
