Jonathan (Jo) Hicks is a postdoctoral researcher on the European Research Council project, Music in London, 1800-1851. His primary interests are in the historically grounded study of musical geographies, especially those of west European megacities. In addition to preparing a monograph on street music and the politics of public space in London and Paris, c.1830-1850, Jo is currently co-convening a symposium on The Melodramatic Moment, 1790-1820.
Jo is a founder member of the Leverhulme-funded Hearing Landscape Critically research network, and a participant in the Oxford-Princeton exchange project, Staging History: Performing the Past in London and New York Theatres, 1770-1870.
Prior to joining Kings, Jo held a Junior Research Fellowship at Lincoln College, Oxford. His doctoral thesis, on Music, Place, and Mobility in Erik Saties Paris, was completed at Oxford in 2012, under the supervision of Professor Peter Franklin. Jo's Masters degree in Musicology was also from Oxford, and his Bachelors degree in Music from the University of Birmingham.
