Welcome to the Conference Music, Research, and Activism

The conference Music, Research, and Activism brings together researchers and practitioners engaged in activism and knowledge production around music. The aim is to explore the wide spectrum of music research that is committed to social and environmental justice, anti-oppression, and social change, and to discuss opportunities for combining academic work with activism.
