Biography

I am British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Huddersfield. I obtained my PhD from the École des hautes études en sciences sociales of Paris in 2017 with a dissertation on the Spanish musical avant-garde during Franco's dictatorship (Jury's Special Mention at the 'Prix de Thèse PSL en Sciences humaines et sociales', 2018). I have contributed several book chapters on this topic to collective volumes on 20th century Spanish music and culture, and have also published several articles in journals of musicology and history. I have co-edited three volumes titled Composing for the State: Music in Twentieth-Century Dictatorships (Routledge, 2016), À l'avant-garde! Art et politique dans les années 1960 et 1970 (Peter Lang, 2013), and Le son des rouages. Représentations des rapports homme-machine dans la musique du 20e siècle (Éditions Delatour France, 2011). I am co-founder and member of the Editorial Board of the electronic journal Transposition. Musique et sciences sociales (https://journals.openedition.org/transposition/) for which I have edited two issues: 'Musique et théorie queer/Music and Queer Theory' (nº 3, 2013) and, with Talia Bachir-Loopuyt, 'Musique, histoire, sociétés. Les études sur la musique à l'EHESS' (hors-série 1, 2018). My current research project concerns music and transition to democracy in post-Francoist Spain.
