Rolling Call for Podcasts and Blog Posts
The LGBTQ+ Music Study Group is delighted to announce its upcoming podcast and blog.
The podcast and blog both aim to provide a broad platform for the discussion of LGBTQ+ issues in music, including and not limited to:
- Music research, teaching and performance
- Upcoming performances and CD releases
- Perspectives on the music industry and academy (including issues of inclusion, equality, diversity and decolonisation)
- Artist/researcher profiles
Each episode of the podcast will take the form of a twenty-minute interview followed by a musical or textual extract.The blogposts will be around 1000 words in length and can include audio-visual material.
We encourage applications from music researchers (including historical musicologists, ethnomusicologists, popular music scholars, music analysts and theorists etc.), composers, performers, teachers, collaborators, and anybody whose work engages both music and LGBTQ+ issues. The Study Group is North European-based, but long-distance Skype interviews from anywhere in the world are most welcome.

Tune in to our first episode:https://soundcloud.com/user-229062406/episode-1-brian-inglis-on-sorabjis-letters
Brian Inglis takes us through the witty, erudite, and at times heartbreaking corpus of letters which Kaikhosru Sorabji wrote to Philip Heseltine (a.k.a. Peter Warlock) between 1913 and 1922.
