Dr Bláithín Hurley
I began my academic studies in UCC and graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Music and History of Art in 2008, followed by a Masters in History of Art at the University of Warwick (Venice Programme) in 2009. As an active musician for many years I saw an opportunity to combine my musical background with my interest in the history of art while studying for my Masters in Venice. This resulted in the topic for my PhD thesis, which I completed at the University of Cambridge in 2015 – Music and Domesticity in Sixteenth-Century Venice.
