The H. Wiley Hitchcock Institute for Studies in American Music at Brooklyn College, City University of New York, is an internationally recognized center for the study and presentation of American music. A division of the college's Conservatory of Music, the Hitchcock Institute, originally known as the Institute for Studies in American Music (ISAM), was established in 1971 by preeminent musicologist, American music scholar (and later distinguished professor) H. Wiley Hitchcock, its first director. His successor, Carol J. Oja, served as director from 1993 to 1997; Ellie M. Hisama served as director from 1997 to 2005. Jeffrey Taylor is the current director. The institute publishes the biannual American Music Review and a series of monographs, serves as an information center, and sponsors conferences and symposia dealing with all areas of American music, including art music, popular music and music of the oral tradition. Renamed in honor of its founder in 2008, the Hitchcock Institute maintains an international presence while continuing to enrich the educational experience of Brooklyn College students, faculty and members of the Brooklyn community through its regular programming of annual conferences, lectures, conferences and artist residencies.
