NJIT’s Department of Humanities Professor, David B. Rothenberg, PhD, Receives Excellence in Research Award

David Rothenberg, PhD, a professor in the NJIT Humanities Department, received at NJIT’s recent annual awards convocation, NJIT’s Excellence in Research Award.

Rothenberg,of Cold Springs, NY, recently published Thousand Mile Song: Whale Music in a Sea of Sound (Basic Books, 2008) a book and compact disc. Whale sounds from thump to song have long struck a chord with this NJIT humanities professor. The rhythms so captivated the intrepid clarinetist that he spent much of last year playing interspecies duets with these melodic mammals.  Rothenberg was also the author of the popular Why Birds Sing (Basic Books, 2005).
