Visiting Music Lecturer, University of York

Alice Masterson is a Visiting Lecturer in Music at the University of York and Fordham London. Her research interests include posthumous fame; the singing voice and its ascribed meanings; audience perception of ‘authenticity’; and women's experiences in music. Her doctoral thesis explored the posthumous legacies of female musicians who were vilified for their lifestyles while living, particularly the ways in which they seem to find public ‘redemption’ through death.
