Biography

Victor A. Stoichiță is an anthropologist at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). In Fabricants d'émotion (2008) he investigated the notions of "tricks", "cunning" and "slyness" used by Romanian Roma musicians in relation to musical structures. He later worked on virtuosity, intellectual property, irony and humor in live musical settings, and also published a Romani songbook for pedagogical use (2010). He is currently the director of the Research Center for Ethnomusicology (CREM) and deputy director of the Centre for Ethnology and Comparative Sociology (LESC/CNRS). He was awarded the “talent” bronze medal of the CNRS in 2013.
