Inter-disciplinary conference exploring the place of music in the making of research.
Music is evocative of meaning and memories tied to people, places and particular events, powerfully bringing them into the present, yet its role in the making of research pathways is rarely foregrounded. This inter-disciplinary conference hosted by the Goldsmiths Anthropology Department compiles a ‘Fieldwork Playlist’ to explore the place of music in the research process, across the social sciences. Evolving from the mix-tape, the playlist is a form of communication through the assemblage of songs. The format is straightforward – one song from each contributor, and the story behind its significance for their research.
