Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I am very interesting in supervising PhDs in all aspects of English history in the period 1450-1750, particularly social and cultural history. More broadly, I am keen to consider applications from anyone who wishes to work on the history of British and Irish popular and traditional music in any period of the past.
