Dr Christopher Wiley chairs roundtable and presents paper at Royal Musical Association annual conference in Manchester

Leave a comment

Dr Christopher Wiley has chaired and presented at a roundtable discussion at the 55th Annual Conference of the Royal Musical Association, hosted by the University of Manchester and the Royal Northern College of Music on 11–13 September 2019.

Entitled ‘What is the place for storytelling in academia? Autoethnography, critical self-reflection, and arts-based practice in music studies’, the roundtable was held in the Carole Nash Recital Room at the Royal Northern College of Music, and was attended by some 50 music scholars representing a wide range of institutions internationally.

The 90-minute roundtable included Dr Wiley’s paper ‘Stories of the self(s) in music studies: method, self-reflexivity, and narrative enquiry’, in which he discussed the potential applications of autoethnography to the discipline of music as well as criticisms that the methodology has elicited, alongside presentations by fellow panellists Esther Cavett, Ian Pace, and Darla M. Crispin.
