Emma Adlard is in the second year of her AHRC-funded PhD at King’s College London researching women’s patronage of French music and dance between 1900 and 1930. Emma holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Royal Holloway and a Master’s degree from Oxford; before beginning her doctorate she worked at Oxford University Press as an Editorial Assistant in the Music Department.
