Dr Rosemary Golding
Rosemary Golding joined the Open University as an Associate Lecturer in 2009, and as Staff Tutor in Music in 2010. Rosemary studied for a BA and MSt at Merton College, Oxford, and completed her PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London. Rosemary’s research has focussed on the history of music as an academic discipline during the nineteenth century.
In 2013 her book, Music and Academia in Victorian Britain, was published by Ashgate. Building on work undertaken for the PhD, this book traces the development of music as a university subject at four British universities during the nineteenth century: Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh and London.
Rosemary’s research has extended to cover areas of institutional and cultural history of music in nineteenth-century Britain. She is interested in musical identities, and particularly in the history of the music profession. She is currently writing about organists and organ recitals, and about some of the music composed for Oxford music degrees.
Rosemary is keen to hear from students interested in any area of music in nineteenth-century Britain, in the social and institutional history of music, and in music education.
