Dr Samuel Llano (University of Durham) 

‘Sounding marginality and social disorder: the battle for Madrid’s soundscape, 1850-1930’ 

Samuel Llano is a musicologist and cultural historian specialising in the study of nineteenth and early-twentieth century Spanish music and in its relationship with other cultures, especially France. His current project deals with the study of Madrid’s soundscape in the nineteenth century, looking at how it helped to articulate social and political responses to a series of problems derived from social inequalities, such as poverty and crime. Llano has worked as Research Associate in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Cambridge for the past three years and is now a Research Associate of Clare College.
