We are delighted to invite researchers, scholars, artists and practitioners from any field engaged with music to participate in the GRS International Summer School to be held 14th-16th June 2022 at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences. The conference is organised in collaboration with the 8TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NARRATIVE INQUIRY IN MUSIC EDUCATION (NIME8).

Exploring Narrative Methodologies in Music Research

Storytelling is both an extraordinary and everyday practice which includes ancient fairytales and sagas, alongside everyday forms of micro and macro narrative, through which individuals and groups interact, negotiate values, make sense of the past, structure the present and imagine the future.  Quite simply: “people without narratives do not exist” (Polkinghorne). The course will focus on narrative forms of research and inquiry whilst contemplating the ways narrative may exist in more-than linguistic forms through its entanglement with music, film, photography, dance and other performative expressions.
