Carla Whalen studied Music and English Literature at the University of Glasgow. Upon gaining a first class honours in 2004 she was awarded the Broomhill Scholarship which enabled her to continue with her studies. Carla is currently reading for an MMus in Musicology at Glasgow with Dr Martin Dixon. She is keen to integrate aspects of both her musical and literary backgrounds into her work and her present research looks at various aspects of Alban Berg's Altenberglieder through Julia Kristeva's psychoanalytic theory of abjection.
