Music Research Seminars

Research Presentations: Semester 2: January–March 2017

The School of Music offers a regular platform for presentations of ongoing research in all aspects of music, ranging from historical musicology through ethnomusicology to composition and creative work in performance.

Invited guest speakers present Research Seminars, while staff and postgraduates present Research Snapshots; both types can range from discussions of ongoing research to presentations of completed projects.

Each talk takes place at 5:15pm on Tuesday in the Mathias Hall in the School of Music, and is followed by refreshments. All welcome.
