Welcome to the website of Hannah Millington. I am a musicologist and cultural historian undertaking a PhD in Music at Dublin City University.

My PhD thesis addresses the choral and solo vocal works of Dame Ethel Smyth, approaching an under-studied facet of Smyth’s oeuvre from an interdisciplinary perspective. Broader research interests include women’s networks; vocal works of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; and the relationship between music and literature.

I am the Student Representative for the Society for Musicology in Ireland (2021–24), Social Media Officer for the Women in Global Music Network, and a founding member of the Dublin Musicology Collective.

‘We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.’

T. S. Eliot
