She was curator/researcher for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival’s Czech Republic, Music of Struggle, and Sacred Sounds and Jerusalem.  Sweet Honey in the Rock credits her as central to their global reach.

At The Ohio State University’s Mershon Center for International Security Studies, Horowitz was Principal Investigator of Protest Music as Responsible Citizenship: A Conversation with Harry Belafonte, Pete Seeger, Bernice Johnson Reagon and Holly Near, The Salaam Shalom Peace Project comprised of 5th grade students from local Muslim, Christian and Jewish Day Schools, and Living Jerusalem.  She directed two symposia initiated by the Executive Dean of the College of Humanities: Negotiating Cultural Identities, Global Media, and International Security and Home and Away: Redefining Security under the Impact of Global Media.

Horowitz teaches courses on Human Rights and Social Movements, Music in Disputed Territories: The Cultural Implications of Globalization, and Living Jerusalem: Ethnography and Blog Bridging in Disputed Territory through the International Studies Program at Indiana University and Ohio State.
