Professor Stephen Banfield


I have taught a wide range of topics and material from historical, analytical, technical and practical standpoints. In more recent years these have mostly focused on American musicals and 'golden age' popular song, the 20th-century English art song, elements of the 19th- and 20th-century canon, and the English late 16th and early 17th century. At masters level the focus has been on bringing 'new musicology' concerns to bear on some of these areas or, conversely, leading 'new musicology' claimants back to close reading and source study.
