Professor Brooks JB has just published two collaborative books devoted to the 20th century French composer, conductor and pedagogue Nadia Boulanger. Each addresses different aspects of Boulanger's multifaceted career, exploring her musical beliefs and interrogating the discourses of power, inclusion and exclusion that shaped her professional world.

About Professor Jeanice Brooks

Jeanice Brooks is Professor of Music at the University of Southampton (UK). Her doctoral dissertation treated musical settings of poetry by the sixteenth-century writer Pierre de Ronsard. Since then she has continued to work on aspects of French music and culture in the Renaissance; her book on the strophic air de cour in the context of court culture, Courtly Song in Late Sixteenth-Century France (University of Chicago Press, 2000), received the 2001 Roland H. Bainton prize for the best book in music or art history. She also works on twentieth-century French music, especially the career of Nadia Boulanger. She is the author of The Musical Work of Nadia Boulanger: Performing Past and Future Between the Wars (Cambridge University Press, 2013); editor of Nadia Boulanger and Her World (University of Chicago Press, 2020) and co-editor of Nadia Boulanger: Thoughts on Music (University of Rochester Press, 2020). She led the Austen Family Music Books digitisation (2015) and current projects explore further topics in domestic music culture in Britain in the years around 1800.
