Dr Joanne Cormac

Dr Joanne Cormac, Nottingham Research Fellow, has been awarded a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship of £1.1M for the project “The Cultural Legacies of the British Empire: Classical Music’s Colonial History (1750-1900).”

Dr Cormac’s fellowship examines Classical music within the context of the British Empire. It investigates how colonialism’s profits underpinned Britain’s musical infrastructure, the impact of colonised and enslaved musicians on its development, and it will trace the patterns of imperial trade underpinning the movements of musicians, ideas, and goods.
