Description


Can music make you sick? - Cultural Research Seminar

Presented by :
Sally-Anne Gross & Dr George Musgrave (University of Westminster)
Dr Chris Anderton (Southampton Solent University)

Facilitator:
Dr Toby Bennett (Southampton Solent University)

Sally and George will share reflections from their recent project for Help Musicians UK – the world’s largest known academic study into music and mental health. Drawing on a survey of over 2,200 musicians and a series of semi-structured interviews, the research revealed that the music community may be up to three times more likely to experience depression compared to the general public, compounded by money worries, poor working conditions, relationship challenges, and high incidence of abuse and discrimination. The study has been widely disseminated in the press and has led to Help Musicians UK launching Music Minds Matter: the first 24/7 support service for the music industry. Read the summaries and full reports here.

Dr Chris Anderton (Solent Music) will open the session with a profile of current in-house research projects and publications related to popular music.

Main objectives :

  • Foster high-level intellectual conversations between researchers, both internally and from other institutions
  • Establish links with other institutions
  • Facilitate staff access to current/cutting-edge research, for their own research activities and for teaching

Event audience : Research Active members of Arts/Media Schools; CDI Hub

  • PhD-holding staff (ECR and established)
  • PGR Students
  • Research-interested others

Please join us afterwards to continue the conversation in more convivial surroundings (Mettricks, 1 Guildhall Place, Southampton, SO14 7DU)!
