When I commenced my PhD journey three years ago at Edge Hill University in northern England, I had little idea of where the journey would take me, both literally and figuratively.
Muscologist Matt Lawson recently submitted his PhD thesis, focussing on the music used in German depictions of the Holocaust on screen. His early research has been disseminated at conferences across the UK, and also at international events in Australia, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Germany and the USA. He completed his undergraduate honours degree in Music at Huddersfield in 2009, and his MA with distinction from the University of York (2012). He was also a postgraduate participant in a HEA collaborative project between Edge Hill University and the University of Roehampton. In October 2015 Matt will participate in the academic symposium at USC Shoah Foundation's Center for Advance Genocide Research Singing in the Lion's Mouth: Music as Resitance to Genocide.
