Music Reading Group
The Music Reading Group brings together academics from all across Leeds and Yorkshire to discuss music. It was started by two members of the School of Media and Communication, Professor David Hesmondhalgh, and Dr Rosemary Lucy Hill (Rosey has now joined the School of Sociology and Social Policy) along with Karl Spracklen of Leeds Beckett University. Dr Alinka Greasley of the School of Music later joined the co-ordinating committee. Andreas Rauh Ortega is the PhD contact for the group. Topics so far discussed include music and gender, music and resistance, and Jonathan Sterne’s book MP3.
