Jane Morlet Hardie is author of several books and many articles on Spanish Sacred Polyphony, Medieval Liturgical Chant and Iberian manuscript and early printed sources. After teaching in the School of Library Science at the University of Michigan and at the Sydney Conservatorium, she is currently an Honorary Associate at the Centre for Medieval Studies, and a member of the editorial Advisory Board of Musicology Australia.

Since joining the Centre for Medieval Studies she has continued to publish widely on Medieval and Renaissance Iberian topics. Her most recent book on the Lamentations of Jeremiah in Spain (funded by the Australian Research Council and the Fulbright Foundation) was published by the Institute of Mediaeval Music in Ottawa. She currently has a number of articles awaiting publication and in progress on manuscript and early printed sources of Iberian liturgical chant and polyphony. A volume of Essays from the recent Centre for Medieval Studies Symposium on Medieval and early Modern Music, “Commemoration, Ritual and Performance”, was published by the Institute of Mediaeval Music in Ottawa in 2006 and a CD entitled “Commemoration and Ritual : The Iberian Connection”, from the Concert that was part of that Symposium, is available from the Centre for Medieval Studies.

In addition to her activities here in Sydney, Jane Hardie is active in the International Musicological Society, has been an IMS Delegate on the Commission Mixte of the Bibliographical Tool RILM, and regularly is invited to lecture and examine postgraduate students at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

In January 2007 Jane was awarded funding for a newly-formed ARC Network for Early European Research Cluster that she convenes at the Centre for Medieval Studies. This Cluster “Cathedral, Court, City and Cloister: Western Music and its Sources 1100-1750” comprises scholars from several Australian and overseas universities. Fisher Library and the Centre for Medieval Studies will co-host their inaugural Symposium at the University in July 2008. Hardie is currently working on a large study of Iberian manuscripts in Fisher Library.
