Presented by the University of Westminster Centre for Commercial Music and Goldsmiths Popular Music Research Unit
Friday 26 May 2017, 9am-6pm
University of Westminster, Harrow Campus
This annual symposium brings together student researchers in popular music – production, business, songwriting, performance, sociology and musicology – from across Britain and, potentially, beyond. 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.
Many of the day’s panels will be reserved for PhD researchers, but we also invite submissions from Masters-level and exceptional Undergraduate researchers who are looking to continue their research work, and at least one quarter of the available presentation slots will be reserved for UG or Masters-level research in progress.
Papers will be limited to 20 minutes for all researchers, with 10 minute Q&A sessions following all papers.
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 Monday 08 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. Lunch will be at your own expense – Harrow Campus has the usual range of on-site catering, and other options are within walking distance. Coffee and tea will be provided, and the day will conclude with a chance to chat informally over a glass of wine.
