About

Hello!  My name is Zack. Thanks for stopping by to read some of my musings!

This blog has morphed into many things since its inception in the 2009.  It started off as a way to form my thoughts during graduate school on issues pertaining to arts management, and a little later as a jumping off point for exploring ideas related to my master’s thesis.

Now that I am upstanding citizen with a decent job and mountains of student loan debt, I write as a way to share ideas, reviews, asides, lists, etc., on subjects that, I hope, make visitors to my blog a bit more curious and inspired than when they first started reading.

The name Uncommon Correlations reflects the type of subject matter I find most interesting in the world.  Namely, topics and ideas that tend to be less mainstream, straightforward, intuitive, or usual. In other words, I leave the pop-culture writing to someone else.

For an example of my long form writing, aka “the hardest thing I’ve ever written”, check out my Master’s thesis : A tome about opera, its history and place in American culture, and the impact that globalization and decentralization of cultural authorities has had on the art form’s identity. Also known as “a light Sunday read”.

  1. This blog has been an incredible resource, as I am in the midst of writing my undergrad senior thesis about the status of Opera in 21st century New York City. It has been wonderful to read such fleshed out and articulate ideas about topics that are so close to my heart. Thanks so much!
