Alex Lloyd is Lecturer in German at St Edmund Hall and Magdalen College, Oxford. Her main research interests lie in representations of youth, memories of war and dictatorship, and the material culture of childhood. As both a singer and a linguist, Alex is also interested in the relationship between language, translation, and music. She has devised translation workshops with undergraduates, exploring theories of vocal translation and the practical aspects of adapting texts for performance. In 2014 she worked with students on translations of German songs from World War I as part of a college commemoration event, and in 2015-16 she will be part of the Knowledge Exchange Project Music in Monasteries – Recording the German Reformation with Prof. Henrike Lähnemann and the Oxford Bach Soloists, of which she is a member.
