Anna Bull is an academic sociologist and ethnographer. She is co-founder of the 1752 Group which aims to address sexual misconduct in higher education. She currently holds a position as Senior Lecturer in Sociology at University of Portsmouth.[1]


Before attaining degrees in social and political sciences at Cambridge and a PhD in sociology at Goldsmiths, Bull had a career as a pianist, cellist and music educator in her native New Zealand and in Scotland.[2]

In her book Class, Control and Classical Music, Bull aims to "politicize the aesthetic of classical music"[3] by investigating societal inequalities that are produced by classical music conventions and institutions. Awarded the Philip Abrams Memorial prize by the British Sociological Association,[4] and has been reviewed as a significant "contribution to the burgeoning literature on middle-class cultural practices" and an "aid to understanding the place of classical music in contemporary society."[5]
