Personal profile

Research interests

Bettina Varwig was an undergraduate at King's College London and completed her graduate studies at Harvard, followed by a Fellowship by Examination at Magdalen College, Oxford and a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at Cambridge. Bettina's research focuses on music and cultural history in early modern Europe, in particular German music of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. She is interested in issues of cultural exchange and transmission, religious practices and processes of secularisation, historical modes of music analysis and listening, and reception studies. Her first monograph, Histories of Heinrich Schütz, offers a detailed cultural analysis of four moments in the composer's career and traces their subsequent reception up to the present day. She is currently preparing a large-scale study of Bach reception in the twenty-first century.
