Dr Joe Davies

Lecturer in Music, Lady Margaret Hall


Dr Joe Davies is Lecturer in Music at Lady Margaret Hall. He completed his DPhil at Oxford, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and subsequently held an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship at Maynooth University. Together with Yvonne Liao, he is co-founder of the Women in Global Music (WIGM) research and industry network.

His research centres on the relationship between nineteenth-century music and other art forms, and on music’s role in shaping notions of authorship, gender, and self-fashioning. At Oxford he offers tutorials for Prelims Analysis, FHS Musical Analysis and Criticism, Musical Thought and Scholarship, and a range of history topics, as well as supervising FHS Dissertations and Analysis Portfolios.

His publications include Drama in the Music of Franz Schubert, co-edited with James Sobaskie (Boydell & Brewer, 2019), Clara Schumann Studies (Cambridge University Press, 2021), and several forthcoming book chapters. He is currently finishing his monograph Schubert and the Gothic (Boydell & Brewer, 2022) and co-editing Clara and Robert Schumann in Context with Roe-Min Kok (Cambridge University Press).
