Personal profile

Research Interests

Christina Bashford is a music historian who works in the sphere of cultural musicology, examining the functions and meanings of music, music-making, and its associated activities in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She has written about chamber music, concert institutions, listening, audiences, and program notes in Victorian Britain. 

Her current research includes a project on violin culture in Britain and Ireland, 1880-1920, on which she has begun to publish and has given several talks, including one on the violin class at the Ballykinlar internment camp during the Anglo-Irish War.  She is also working on music in Britain during World War 1 and is co-editing (with Gayle Sherwood Magee and William Brooks) a volume of essays for the University of Illinois Press: Over Here, Over There: Transatlantic Conversations on the Music of World War 1.
