About the Author
Elizabeth Eva Leach lectures in music at Royal Holloway, University of London.
I write academic books designed for advanced undergraduate students, postgraduates, and my colleagues in the disciplines of musicology, history, literature, and art history.
I am a medievalist with a training in musicology who has a focus on songs and lyrics in the later Middle Ages. A major focus for my research has been the work of Guillaume de Machaut (c.1300-1377), although I have broad interests in the function of lyric performance, songs, and singing (including the idea of song in literary works) in late-medieval courts.
Many of my journal articles and book chapters can be accessed for free via my website and blog: http://eeleach.wordpress.com/blog (this text box doesn't allow HTML, so you'll have to cut and paste the link--sorry!).
