Jeremy Frusco received his Ph.D. in Music at the University of Florida in 2022. His current work explores the interdisciplinary dimensions of popular music, particularly hip hop, and how contemporary artists use their platform to perform care, practice social responsibility, and critically reflect on identity and belonging. His dissertation research examines how the Italian rapper Ghali forms creative strategies of care and responsibility in response to the pressures of celebrity, internet culture, and sociopolitical conflict. Beyond this research, he has worked collaboratively with colleagues in the humanities to better understand the invisible emotional labor behind livestreaming and online community interactions. Through platforms like Discord and Twitch, their work examined how language about live-streaming struggles to grasp the emotional resonances of digital life.
