Biography

Lorraine Byrne Bodley holds a PhD in Music and in German from University College Dublin (2000), and is the first woman in Ireland to be conferred with a DMUS in Musicology, a higher doctorate on published work (NUI, 2012). Major grants and awards for her research on Schubert, on Goethe and Music, include a Gerda Henkel Foundation scholarship (2014); two DAAD Senior Academic’s Awards (2014 and 2010); an Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship (2001-03) and the Goethe Prize of the English Goethe Society (2001). She is an invited Member of the Internationale Schubert-Gesellschaft (Tübingen and Vienna). In 2015 she was elected to The Royal Irish Academy and President of the Society for Musicology in Ireland. 

Dr Byrne Bodley teaches graduate and postgraduate seminars on musicology, and the music of Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Wolf. She has also held Visiting Professorships and research fellowships at the University of Leipzig (2010) and the University of Tübingen (2014). 

Dr Byrne Bodley is known internationally for her work on Schubert, on Goethe and Music and on German Song, on all of which she has published prolifically and lectured internationally (in German and in English) in Germany, Belgium, Russia, Canada, USA, UK and Ireland. She has published 11 books including: A Community of the Imagination: Seóirse Bodley’s Goethe’s Settings (Carysfort Press, 2013); Goethe and Zelter: Musical Dialogues (Ashgate, 2009) which was named an Outstanding Academic Book of 2010 by Choice and has been widely acclaimed as an ‘excellent translation’ and ‘a major contribution’ to musicology and Goethean studies (Music and Letters, The Schubertian, Choice, Modern Language Review, German Quarterly). Publications reflecting her interest in Music and Culture have appeared in German Quarterly, Music and Letters; The Musical Times Musiktheorie, Nineteenth Century Music Review, Oxford German Studies; Publications of the English Goethe Society.

Forthcoming publications include two volumes of essays (co-edited with Julian Horton): Schubert’s Late Music: History, Theory, Style (Cambridge University Press, 2015) and Rethinking Schubert (Oxford University Press, 2015). She is currently writing a new biography on Schubert which has been commissioned by Yale University Press.

  Description

Radio broadcast. Franz Schubert, Talking History, presented by Professor Patrick Geoghegan, Professor of History at TCD, Newstalk 10 (14 February 2015) https://www.newstalk.com/podcasts/Talking_History/

German premiere of Lorraine Byrne Bodley’s edition of Goethe’s Proserpina, performed by the Thüringer Symphoniker Orchestra on 4 June 2010 in the Rudolstädter Heidecksburg, with a repeat performance on 10 June in the Saalfelder Schlosskapelle, Germany. The premiere was broadcast on Deutsche Welle (2010)

International Public Musicology Symposium, National Concert Hall Keynote Speaker: Christopher Gibbs James H. Ottaway Jr. Professor of Music IRCHSS New Foundations Scheme. The aim of this symposium is to ask how musicology relates to the ‘public voice’, the voice of culture at large. At a time when the government is calling for a new level of connectedness between higher education and wider society, academics are under increasing pressure to address this issue of civic engagement. Additionally, as many of our doctoral graduates do not follow an academic career path, there is an urgent need to offer alternative pathways to graduate students forging a career beyond the academy. The aim is to open up dialogue between academics and musicologists working in archives, music festivals, and the media, in Ireland and internationally.
