Doctoral Studentship: the social impact of music making
Applications are invited for a funded doctoral Studentship beginning September 2018 to support research into the social impact of making music.
The studentship seeks to encourage outstanding research into the practice of making music with specific communities with the intent to improve their own social position.
- The focus should be on social impact (rather than other intended benefits) and on participatory practices of making music (rather than listening to music). Given existing scholarship in music therapy and in the impact of music making on wellbeing and health, proposals relating to these areas are less likely to be successful.
- The doctoral programme at the Guildhall School is exceptionally well-placed to support practice-based research. Proposals from applicants with professional experience and ongoing practice in socially-engaged music making are warmly invited.
- Applicants are encouraged to take account of the global reach of the field, while also capitalizing on the opportunities afforded by Guildhall’s situation within the UK’s cultural capital and our relationship with the Barbican Centre.
