Faculty of Arts and Humanities
Celebrating Student AchievementOn 10 October 2016, our Faculty held our annual Celebrating Student Achievement event to mark the achievements of some students nominated by their departments for academic achievements, progress or effort. Guests were entertained by members of the Music Department and Durham University Light Opera Group and the students were presented with a commemorative plaque.
Music: Prof Michelle Meinhart speaks at WW1 music research network meeting
Prof Meinhart’s presentation outlined her ongoing research on music in the English country house during the First World War.
She joined scholars from around the country engaged in various approaches to researching the history of civilian and military music between 1914-1918.
The event was held on 28 April 2017 at the University of Kent Canterbury, and was supported by Gateways to the First World War, a centre for public engagement with the First World War centenary funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
