Decolonising the musical university

Call for participation

The Call for Participation has now closed.

Please send your expression of interest to participate in 'Decolonising the Musical University' by 23:59 GMT on Sunday 15 December 2019. 

This expression of interest should outline your areas of work/interest, and proposed topics of discussion you would like to bring to the table.

Not a call for papers

Please note that this is a call for participation, not a call for papers: the event will not be based around presentation of papers.

Our approach

Our plan as organisers is to create a tailored and pragmatic programme of activities for conference participants based on the interests of those who wish to attend, working in formats suggested by participants.

This is because we want this gathering to produce meaningful changes in practice and thinking that have real-life impact on current and prospective staff and students involved in music in universities.

We particularly welcome participation of those who are marginalised in the arts, society and academia, especially BIPOC.

There is no fee to attend the conference. We are working to obtain funds for travel bursaries to assist students and unfunded researchers to attend, but are not able to guarantee any assistance to individuals at this stage.
