This event will be an interactive workshop for UCL colleagues from all disciplines and backgrounds to talk informally about how they approach music in their research. We hope to get a sense of the diversity of existing approaches among colleagues, and to begin building interdisciplinary connections.

A keynote talk from Prof. Sarah Hibberd (University of Bristol) will begin the day, followed by a mixture of small-group and plenary discussions. Lunch will be served.

Please book now on Eventbrite if you would like to participate in this event. We will confirm your place by 10 June. We aim to include as wide a range of disciplines and interests as possible. If you are not listed on the Music Futures website, then please describe your research interests in a few sentences. More information about the workshop is available here.
