Die LGBTQ+ Study Group lädt vom 26.-27.05.2017 zum Symposium „Music, Queer, Intersections“ in die Edge Hill University in der Nähe von Liverpool (UK) ein. Zum Inhalt: „This symposium aims to support current and nurture future research on LGBTQ issues within music studies. On the one hand, it hopes to foster more activer exchange between the sub-disciplines of music studies in terms of theoretical and methodological approaches. On the other hand, it strives to bring musicology into greater dialogue with current pressing debates in queer studies, in particular with issues of affect theory, intersectionality and transnationalism. Through diverse formats – including a keynote lecture, roundtable discussions, reading workshops and presentations – this two-day event will gather music scholars interested in queer studies as well as LBGTQ identifying musicologists of all sub-disciplines from student up to professorial level“.
