Her dissertation,“The Most Expressionist of All the Arts: Programs, Politics, and Performance in Critical Discourse about Music and Expressionism, c. 1918–1923,” was supported by grants from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (German Academic Exchange Service) and an Alvin H. Johnson/AMS-50 Dissertation Fellowship from the American Musicological Society. Clare has presented her research at national and international conferences, including meetings of the American Musicological Society, the Austrian Studies Association, the German Studies Association, and the North American Conference on Nineteenth-Century Music. Her article on critical reception of Alexander Zemlinsky's Second String Quartet, op. 15 was recently published in the Journal of the American Musicological Society. An article on critical reception of Arnold Schoenberg's and Franz Schreker's Chamber Symphonies is forthcoming in the Journal of Musicology.
