Hello and welcome! I am a Lecturer in Music at the University of Oxford.

The posts that you’ll find on my blog will mostly be about music history – mainly about the twentieth century, and often about music in the theatre.

I hope you’ll join me as I travel through these traces of music history. I’d love to hear your thoughts on posts, so please feel free to comment! If you want to hear more about my research, then head over to my Media page, which has links to radio and TV recordings as well as articles. I’m a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker, so I’m frequently on the BBC talking about my research.

Alongside my academic work I’m also active as a journalist, writing primarily on the arts. I founded and now edit The Oxford Culture Review, a website dedicated to arts and humanities research communication, and won the 2015 Observer/Anthony Burgess Prize for Arts Journalism with an article on Sibelius, available here.

To contact me, please email me at leah.broad[at]music.ox.ac.uk. I am always happy to talk to journalists and broadcasters, for anything from light-hearted classical music to more serious programmes. My specialisms are:
Theatre music
19th & 20th century music history
Scandinavian culture (19th and 20th centuries)
Modernism

If you would like me to run a communication and outreach workshop or talk for your university, then please email me at the above address with an outline of the type of workshop you are interested in (e.g. writing research blogs, academic writing for radio).

My academic profiles are available on the Faculty of Music website, academia.edu, and LinkedIn.

I am also on Twitter @LeahBroad, and on Instagram @leahbroad
