Department of Music


We are interested in exploring how music interacts with other art forms, and in applying and developing methodologies from other disciplines. Topics of particular interest include:

  • opera
  • film and TV
  • music and visual cultures
  • pervasive media
  • manuscripts
  • music and alabasters
  • technologies

The Department also hosts the Centre for Music on Stage and Screen (MOSS).
