Emma’s DPhil research, supervised by Professor Laura Tunbridge, aims to uncover how young women in nineteenth-century Ireland interacted with domestic art music (music made in the home). It explores the ways in which societal influences such as religion, class and other facets of identity impacted how music was taught and its significance as a tool for social mobility, marriage and employment.
