Christopher Marsh spent nine long, hard years in Cambridge before escaping to Belfast in 1992. When he is not reading, researching, teaching, writing, marking or administrating, he likes to cycle, run, grow vegetables, track otters and entertain his various offspring. He offers various modules on aspects of early modern English history. He held a Leverhulme Research Fellowship 2004-6 and a visiting fellowship at Clare Hall, Cambridge in 2004, and is now a life member of the college. He held a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship for the calendar year 2013, and is PI of the AHRC project 'Hit Songs and their significance in 17th-century England' (2014-17).
He is a social and cultural historian, working mainly on England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. His first projects all concerned aspects of popular religion, but has published Music and the society in early modern England, which was awarded the 2011 Michaelis-Jean Ratcliffe Prize. His current research focus is on music and popular culture in 17th-century England.
