Dr Florian Scheding


I teach courses on music and migration, music and the Holocaust, cabaret, analytical techniques and discourses, source studies, gender studies, and 20th-century music more broadly. I have acted as Director of Music's MA Programme and have supervised numerous research students, with topics spanning the diverse musical cultures of the 20th and 21st centuries. I am always happy to talk to new or prospective students about research topics.

I am the Director and founder of the MSc in Migration and Mobilities Studies, a truly interdisciplinary programme offering students a unique combination of perspectives from law, sociology, economics, politics as well as modern languages, humanities and the arts.

Before joining Bristol, I taught at the Universities of Cambridge, Royal Holloway, and Southampton. I have guest taught at institutions including New York University, Kings College London, and Humboldt University Berlin. In 2013, I received a prestigious teaching award by the University of Southampton Students' Union, and in June 2016 I was honoured to receive the University of Bristol Students' Award for Outstanding Teaching.
