Cultures of Popular Music Seminar Programme

Cultures of Popular Music Seminar Programme 2012, Brisbane
A series of fortnightly seminars supported by Griffith University’s Centre for Cultural Research

All sessions are free of charge and will take place between 6.30 – 8.00 pm. Venue will be the S07 2.19 in the Griffith Graduate Centre. Refreshments will be available. And we tend to go for a drink at the Ship Inn after the event, so it’s a good place to meet other people studying music in Brisbane.

A Facebook Group for the series can be found here:
