Personal Biography

Rhys Jones received his BA, MPhil and PhD in History at the University of Cambridge. His current research examines  perceptions of temporality and historicity during the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries, and the ways in which these were transformed by the experience of revolution. He has previously researched the sonic resonances of revolutionary rhetoric in the music of Beethoven, focusing in particular upon the relationship between musical receptivity and radical political participation in Vienna.
