Hello and welcome! I am a research student at the University of Oxford, specialising in music and theatre at the turn of the century.

My current research is focused on Scandinavian theatre of the early twentieth century, looking at personalities such as Jean Sibelius, August Strindberg, Henrik Ibsen, and Ture Rangström. If you want to hear more about my work, I’m one of the BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinkers 2016, so will be on the BBC throughout the year. An interview with the AHRC on my current research is available here, and previous appearances on Free Thinking can be downloaded from the BBC as podcasts.

I am also active as a journalist; I won the 2015 Observer/Anthony Burgess Prize for Arts Journalism with an article on Sibelius, available here. Samples of my writing are available on The Conversation, HuffPost UK, Corymbus, The Oxford Research Centre for the Humanities, and Oxford Contemporary Music. Over 100 articles and interviews by me are available on The Oxford Culture Review, which I founded and now edit.

I currently co-lead the university’s Nordic Network, which runs regular research events on Nordic studies to which all are welcome.

If you would like to contact me, then please email me at leah.broad@music.ox.ac.uk. I am always happy to talk to journalists and broadcasters; my specialisms are on the New Generation Thinkers expert list.

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
