Event description

Description


Birmingham City University is pleased to host the second edition of the Documenting Jazz conference, which will take place between 16 and 18 January 2020. Focused on this year’s theme, ways of documenting, it brings together delegates from across the academic, archive, library, and museum sectors to explore and discuss proposals on jazz as visual culture, and its distinct representations: photography, press, cinema, television, and web.

Additionally, the conference will address distinct ways of documenting jazz, challenging the narratives surrounding jazz as a male-dominated domain, and the way those affected have been marginalised from this music history.

Keynote speakers
