Department of Musicology

Research seminar

The research seminar in musicology is a forum where scholars, PhD students and other students meet to discuss current or concluded projects within musicology or other related disciplines. A couple of times each semester, international scholars visit our department to present their work. Please note that some of the seminars are text seminars, to which texts can be acquired by contacting the coordinator of the seminar series, Ester Lebedinski, by e-mail

The seminars are usually held Tuesdays from 1.15 pm CET until 3 pm. Directors of the seminar are Lars Berglund and Ester Lebedinski. If you have any questions, please contact Ester.
