Philip Bullock (University of Oxford)

Within Philip Bullock’s work on translation, reception and cultural exchange, he has a particular interest in how Russian culture came to Britain in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. Publications in this area include Rosa Newmarch and Russian Music in Late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth-Century England (2009) and – co-edited with Rebecca Beasley, Russia in Britain, 1880-1940: From Melodrama to Modernism (2013). More generally, he is interested in expanding our understanding of the European North to include both Russia and Britain, alongside Scandinavia and Finland (as well as other states around the Baltic and North Seas). He has translated and edited The Correspondence of Jean Sibelius and Rosa Newmarch, 1906-1939 (2011) and is currently co-organising (with Daniel M. Grimley) a major conference timed to mark the 150th anniversaries of the births of Glazunov, Nielsen and Sibelius in 2015.

Keywords: Translation/reception/comparative literature, Anglo-Russian relations, Russo-Finnish cultural relations, modernism in the European North
