Flora Dennis (BA, PhD) is Research Fellow at the Centre. She studied and taught at Cambridge University, where her doctoral research centred on the relationship between music, printing and the court of Ferrara during the sixteenth-century. Her current research is concerned with the ‘consumption’ of music books and amateur, domestic music-making in this period. In addition to having published on music at the Ferrarese court, she is a member of the editorial advisory board of the Journal for the Society of Renaissance Studies. She has also written and broadcast on Italian Futurist music and musicians. She is contributing to the Focus Study and related exhibition, The Domestic Interior in Italy, 1400-1600.
