Stephen Luttmann joined the UNC faculty in 1999, having previously been Assistant Music Librarian at the University of Houston. He has advanced degrees in Music Librarianship (MLS, Indiana University, 1996), Music History (MA, University of Louisville, 1989) and Germanic Studies (MA, Indiana University, 1991), and has pursued additional studies in the latter two areas. In addition to his duties as Music Librarian, Professor Luttmann teaches "Introduction to Doctoral Research" each fall semester, as well as occasional undergraduate courses in German literature.
Professor Luttmann has presented conference papers on Hindemith's Harmonie der Welt, Ernst Krenek and the Viennese music journal 23, the early cinquecento madrigal, and various issues concerning music librarianship. Publications include articles on such topics as Johann Schenck's viola da gamba music and the text transfer between Jean Genet's novel Querelle de Brest and Rainer Werner Fassbinder's film Querelle. Essays on Katherine Hoover, Ruth Schonthal, and Joan Tower appear in Women and Music in America since 1900: An Encyclopedia (Oryx Press 2002). His book for Routledge, Paul Hindemith: A Guide to Research, was published in 2005.
Professor Luttmann's current scholarly interests include twentieth-century music, especially in Central Europe; music criticism and aesthetics; bibliographic instruction; and German language instruction for music students.
