Dr Georgina Bartlett

Stipendiary Lecturer in Music

After completing Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in music at the University of Miami, I came to Oxford in 2016 to start a DPhil in Music at St Hugh’s College under the supervision of Professor Suzanne Aspden.

Teaching

At St Peter’s, I tutor undergraduates in music. I am passionate about teaching and take every opportunity to work with students. During my time at Oxford, I have lectured at the Music Faculty and I have held a Junior Teaching Fellowship at the Ashmolean Museum as part of the Krasis Programme. I have also tutored students from Christ Church, Exeter, Oriel, and St Hugh’s colleges on eighteenth-century opera and the music of Richard Strauss. At the University of Miami, I was a Research Assistant and guest lecturer. 

Research

My research focuses on music in Britain around the turn of the nineteenth century. Currently, I am working on the intersection between comic opera, pleasure garden music, domestic entertainment, and street songs in London from 1797-1844. Previously, I did a project on the image of Royal Navy sailors in English broadside ballads during the early nineteenth century.
