I am a doctoral candidate researching the work of the publishing and recording firm Les Editions de l’Oiseau-Lyre and its owner Louise Hanson-Dyer, specifically her collaborations with women musicians, artists, and scholars. In 2019, I travelled to Paris for archival research at the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Bibliothèque littéraire Jacques Doucet. I have also been the recipient of the Norman Macgeorge Scholarship, the Jim Marks Postgraduate Scholarship, and the Ormond Exhibitions Scholarship, and have presented my research at several international conferences, including in Vienna, Berlin, Hobart and Melbourne. My broader research interest
Thalia Laughlin is a PhD Candidate at the University of Melbourne, researching Louise Hanson-Dyer’s (1884-1962) patronage and artistic support of women in the first half of the twentieth century.
