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 Lars Berglund by e-mail
NB! Due to the corona situation, all seminars during the spring semester 2021 will be held digitally in Zoom. All seminars have the same Zoom link; see below.

The seminars are usually held Tuesdays from 1.15 pm CET until 3 pm.
