Faculty of Music

Leverhulme Early Career Fellow

We are delighted to welcome Dr Jacob Olley as a new Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Faculty from October 2020. Jacob comes to us from the University of Münster, where he has been a Research Associate on the project ‘Corpus Musicae Ottomanicae: Critical Editions of Near Eastern Music Manuscripts (2015–2027)’.

Jacob’s Cambridge project focuses on Ottoman music criticism between 1876 and 1928, debates about Turkish musical modernity, and forms of musical universalism that competed with those coming from European imperial sources of the same period.
