Where have we come from and where are we going? The case for plural understandings in musicology.
In our current, tumultuous times, musicology faces unprecedented challenges. This paper applies the concepts of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in order to better understand the context of musicological research and the need for more heterogeneous methodologies. The discussion proceeds through the trajectory of my own research, which has expanded from traditional positivist approaches to colonial history to more eclectic, cross-disciplinary explorations and collaborations with First Nations artists.
Dr Johanna Selleck, presenter.

In this lecture, Jennifer L Morgan uses the history of three black women from the sixteenth and seventeenth century to explore questions of methodology and evidence in the early history of the black Atlantic. Through evidence from visual art, law, and commerce Morgan considers the challenges and possibilities of crafting a social historical study of women whose voices are so often absent from the archival record but whose lives and perspectives have proven to be essential for comprehending the origins of racial capitalism.
Please note that the 2023 Ernest Scott Prize usually announced at this lecture, will be announced at a later date.
