20th Century Music, Modernism in Music, Igor Stravinsky, Music and Disability

Huishu’s DPhil thesis, supervised by Professor Jonathan Cross, employs an interdisciplinary approach to Stravinsky by incorporating theories and perspectives from disability studies. It explores two interconnected research questions: first, how Stravinsky’s music could be understood as intersecting with disability across historical, critical, and analytical contexts, and second, how a recognition of disability aesthetics in Stravinsky’s music might lead to a re-evaluation of his work.
