Discovering Music - Faculty of Humanities Symposium 2021

Tuesday 11 May 2021 - Wednesday 12 May 2021

The annual Humanities Faculty Symposium will this year be centered around the theme 'music'. Music plays an important role in the life of almost every person, particularly during the pandemic when we have to be at home a lot and music offers us an escape. There is however so much we still don't know about music and therefore on the 11th and 12th of May there will be several online lectures on this topic. Each lecture will be given by a different speaker who has his/her own connection with the theme: from the Middle Ages to hiphop to protest songs. It's going to be a swinging symposium!

More information

More information on the speakers and lectures follows soon! You can join the symposium for free after registering, you will then receive the Kaltura links to join the lectures.
Confirmed speakers: Aafje de Roest, Tim Vergeer, Frans Willem Korsten, J. Li and many more.
