PhD projects

Andrew Kirkman has published and lectured on various aspects of fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century music. His earlier publications looked principally at issues of style and influence. More recently he has been more concerned with the historiography and cultural context of music for the Mass from the fourteenth to the early sixteenth century, an interest that resulted in his recent book The Cultural Life of the Early Polyphonic Mass (CUP, 2010). Future publications include an anthology of essays, Contemplating Shostakovich: Life, Music and Film, edited jointly with Alexander Ivashkin, and a study of music and musical life at the collegiate church of St Omer in Saint-Omer, Northern France, in the later Middle Ages.

Professor Kirkman welcomes doctoral research enquiries matching his research interests.
