Presented by the University of Westminster Centre for Commercial Music and Goldsmiths Popular Music Research Unit
This symposium will bring together student researchers in popular music – broadly construed – from across Britain. It is an opportunity for students to present their developing research to friendly, interested and expert listeners, and to meet and network with future colleagues. Most of the day’s panels will be reserved for PhD and Masters researchers, but this year we also invite submissions from exceptional Undergraduate researchers who are looking to continue their research work.
Papers will be limited to 20 minutes for PhD and Masters researchers, 10 minutes for Undergraduates, with 10 minute Q&A sessions following all papers.
Please send a 200-word abstract of your proposed paper to one of the following organisers by 5pm on Friday 15 May:
Dr Tom Perchard (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Dr Chris Kennett (email@example.com)
Please include contact details and an indication of your current level of study.
We will let you know if your proposal has been accepted by Friday 22 May, and will circulate a full schedule of confirmed speakers shortly thereafter.
If you are not ready to present but would like to attend, you will be most welcome: please contact Dr Chris Kennett to book your place.
Attendance is free, coffee and tea will be provided, and the day will conclude with a chance to chat informally over a glass of wine.
