We are delighted to announce that Francesca Vella has been awarded a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Faculty of Music from the autumn of 2017. Francesca completed her PhD about Verdi reception in late 19th-century Milan at KCL, before taking up a junior research fellowship at St John’s College, Cambridge. During the next three years, she will be working on a book project entitled Geographies of Opera in Italy, 1850–1872, which examines networks of opera production and reception in mid 19th-century Italy at both a trans-municipal and a transnational level (with an emphasis on the role played by emergent media of communication as well as transportation). Francesca looks forward to meeting and collaborating with students and colleagues with an interest in opera (and 19th-century music more at large!), and hopes to be able to contribute to Faculty life in many and varied ways.
