H. Megumi Orita is a Ph.D. candidate in Musicology at UNC Chapel Hill. Her dissertation, “I Haven’t Got It All Figured Out Just Yet”: The Emergence and Impact of Post-Feminist Teen Music (1992–2003), explores how the music of women singer-songwriters at the turn of the millennium provoked a new socio-political activism directed specifically at teenage girls. Meg’s research incorporates musical analysis with feminist theory, print media studies, and social media ethnography.
