Music Research Lectures are free and all are welcome.
The Music Research Series invites researchers from across the country, and from within the department, to present and discuss their work.
The Series is a space for the development of cutting-edge research in music, and for the training of postgraduate and Early Career Researchers from Goldsmiths and elsewhere.
The sessions bring together scholars, practitioners, and people working in music outside the university. They may include formal papers, panel discussions, conversations, or any other format that suits the research.
Sessions take place at 6pm alternate Thursdays in term 1 and 2.
Attendance is strongly recommended for all postgraduate students (MA, MMus and PGR) in Music, as the events will help hone research skills, facilitate the creation of professional networks and help to consolidate the department’s postgraduate community. Undergraduates, researchers and visitors from across the college and the community are also most welcome to these public lectures.
