About the author
Roger Hansford (Editorial Board)
Roger Hansford’s research interests revolve around nineteenth-century romanticism, particularly keyboard and vocal music in Victorian Britain and their literary contexts. At University of Southampton, Roger was among the early supporters of the Southampton Centre for Nineteenth-Century Research, and a teaching assistant for the undergraduate course ‘Materials of Music History, 1500–1900’. He has presented papers at the Biennial Conference on Nineteenth-Century Music, the Biennial Conference on Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain, and at University of Southampton’s ‘Other Voices Study Day’. Roger holds a Post-Graduate Certificate in music education, and gained distinction for his MMus in Musicology. His doctoral research attracted funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led to the 2017 monograph Figures of the Imagination: Fiction and Song in Britain, 1790–1850 (Taylor & Francis).
