Professor Jonathan Cross elected as Fellow of the British Academy

Professor Jonathan Cross has been named as one of the twelve academics from the University of Oxford who have been elected Fellows of the British Academy for their distinguished contributions to research. 

On the appointment, Jonathan says: ‘I am deeply honoured by this recognition from the British Academy, but I am also the first to acknowledge that this could not have been achieved without the collaboration and support of colleagues in the Faculty and beyond, to whom I am immensely grateful. I look forward to working with the Academy to continue to help raise the profile of and argue for the value of the humanities in all aspects of our national life.’

Jonathan Cross is Professor of Musicology in the Faculty of Music and a Tutor at Christ Church. He specialises in the study of the music of the 20th and 21st centuries. His work ranges from a biographical study of Igor Stravinsky to analytical approaches to contemporary computer-aided compositional practices.
