Ana Stevenson, BComm(dist.) (CQU), BA(Hons) (UQ), PhD (UQ), is a musician and early career researcher.
Growing up in Rockhampton, Queensland, Ana’s early musical development was fostered in the Rockhampton Chamber Music Society and the Rockhampton Youth Orchestra. Ana has diverse range of musical interests, and plays recorder, cello, double bass, and tuned percussion. She is also a choral singer, and dabbles with the piano. Ana is accomplished in the main five recorders: the sopranino, descant, alto, tenor, and bass.
Her mother Janet Stevenson and Br. Mick Bible supported her development on the recorder, while Mary Steer, Colleen Sharp (Rockhampton), and Matthew Kinmont (Brisbane) were invaluable music mentors.
Among other ensembles, she has sung with Gondwana Voices, Unisong Community Choir, the Brisbane Chamber Choir, and Canticum Chamber Choir, and was previously in the St John’s College Choral Scholars. Ana has played in the pit orchestras for many musical theatre productions, with Rockpak, the Rockhampton Musical Union, Queensland Musical Theatre, and the Ignatians Musical Society.
Recently, Ana has been a Visiting Scholar in the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program at the University of Pittsburgh, USA. Currently, she is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the International Studies Group at the University of the Free State, South Africa. For more information, visit Ana’s website!
