This broad topic encompasses work in several distinct disciplines: ethnomusicology; sociology; social history; social psychology; human geography; education and marketing. We particularly encourage work that combines approaches and crosses the boundaries between disciplines.
We welcome applications in areas that correspond with current staff research interests. We look for detailed and well thought-out proposals, which set out specific research questions and outline the originality of your topic or approach. If you would like to discuss your ideas informally before submitting an application, please contact the department.
