Jacob Mallinson Bird is a DPhil candidate in Musicology at Wadham College, where he is also a Senior Scholar. Jacob’s work is mainly focussed on the voice and its function in identity-building in drag lip-sync performance. He is particularly interested in psychoanalytical and phenomenological perspectives on the voice, and how these intersect with queerness, specifically in relation to the voice’s structural queerness.
