New Jazz Conceptions: History, Theory, Practice

Posted: March 19th, 2014 | Filed under: News | No Comments »

Saturday 31 May
University of Warwick

In recent years jazz studies has attempted to move beyond the canonical view of jazz as a narrative of great performers within an American context, becoming more interdisciplinary and international in its approach. This one-day conference will bring together Warwick, Midlands and National speakers to discuss current research in jazz, share ideas about methodologies for future study, and explore the link between academics and the practice of jazz in the wider community.

Speakers: Tony Whyton, Catherine Tackley, Andrew Hodgetts, Roger Magraw, Katherine Williams, Adrian Litvinoff, Simon Barber and Vic Hobson (National Jazz Archive).


Registration is now open for the one-day conference New Jazz Conceptions: History, Theory, Practice. Conference fees are £20 (full) or £5 (students), which includes lunch, coffee and a wine reception.

Booking forms must be sent to Sue Dibben, Humanities Research Centre by 17 May: Booking Form (PDF Document) / Booking Form (Word Document)
