”One of the focal points in a musicians doctoral project is one’s own experience which affects not only the artistic decisions but often also the choices made during the research. This seminar aims at exploring and developing the modes of the musician of researching and verbalizing their own experience. Research texts based on a researcher’s own experience as well as the foundations and challenges of research and writing based on a musician’s own experience will be discussed. Texts based on each student’s own doctoral project will be produced.”

The seminar is in English. Upon full participation students will be awarded 3 ECTS points, reading materials will be provided to the registered participants in the beginning of February.
