    A wide-ranging scholar, Georgina Born is Professor of Music and Anthropology at Oxford University, and a fellow of the British Academy. Her work has consistently explored the interdisciplinary methods at the intersection of musicology and ethnography, as they shed light on cultural production, particularly music and media technology.
