Dr Leah Broad, Junior Research Fellow & Faculty Member (Christ Church) is featured in the audiobook with her essay on freedom of speech & women’s rights in nineteenth century Sweden.

She wrote her thesis on theatre productions for which music was written by Jean Sibelius, Ture Rangström, and Wilhelm Stenhammar. She is currently writing a group biography of Smyth, Clarke, Howell and Carwithen for Faber & Faber, and was a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker and winner of the 2015 Observer/Anthony Burgess Prize for Arts Journalism.
