Dr Ross Cole

Research Fellow, Homerton College


Biography:

Focusing predominantly on British and American music of the 20th century, my research interests cut across popular culture and the avant garde. I studied at the Universities of Cambridge (PhD 2015, King's College), York (MRes 2010), and Oxford (BA 2009, Christ Church), where I was awarded the Gibbs Prize. Prior to my current position as a Research Fellow, I held a Temporary Lectureship at Cambridge, where I offered courses at undergraduate and MPhil level including 'Popular Music of the Black Atlantic: From Slavery to Hip Hop' and 'Musical Countercultures of the 1960s'. I was awarded the Faculty of Music’s Teaching Prize in 2016.
