For his PhD thesis as part of the ongoing ERC project 'BENEDICAMUS', James researches polyphonic music in fourteenth-century England. By situating musical sources in the contexts of their compilation and use, he intends to remodel networks of musical composition and distribution, and to shed light on the performative and devotional patterns of English institutions in the period.
