Speaker: Eloise Garland, Musician and Deaf awareness campaigner

Where are all the Deaf Musicians?

The Department of Music in the The School of Arts and Social Sciences welcomes Eloise Garland as part of the Postgraduate Discussion Group. The seminars are open to all postgraduate students in Music.

Abstract

The Music PG student communities of several University of London institutions have joined forces in launching a discussion group. Each session involves an informal, student-led discussion on one or two articles or a broader topic concerning music research in all its shapes and forms. The initiative hopes to spark dialogue and community amongst the several University of London music departments and their students. Sessions are free to attend, and all are welcome to join in.

After two very successful sessions, the London Music Research PG discussion group returns to City, University of London this May. City alumna Eloise Ruth Garland will host the event.

The focal point for this session will be Annabel F. Hanson's 2013 publication 'Engaging Deaf Children with Music', which was commissioned by Music4U. The most important sections are sections 3 and 5, but a skim-read of the whole article is preferable.

For more information, see the article.

About the speaker

She works alongside a number of charities, organisations, and companies to promote full inclusion and access to music for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing.

The documentary explored ways in which people with hearing loss engage with music and sound and challenged listeners to consider music appreciation from another perspective.
