The Research Forum is where the Department meets each week to discuss the latest research. Organised entirely by postgraduate students, the format varies from week to week: events include seminars given by distinguished visitors or by our own staff, or thematic symposia featuring several shorter contributions and open discussion.

The Postgraduate Seminar is a weekly session in which our postgraduate students present their research to their peers and staff.

In 2013/2014 these events normally take place on Tuesday afternoons. Programme of Research Events 2013/2014

Musicon Concerts: Indian Music - Veena Sahasrabuddhe

9th May 2012, 19:30, Durham Town Hall, Market Place

Musicon is delighted to host a concert of Indian music by one of the most acclaimed vocalists in the Hindustani (North Indian) music tradition today. Born into a musical family, Veena Sahasrabuddhe is equally renowned for the depth, power and sheer beauty of her performances of the classical khyal genre, and for the expression and melodic inventiveness of her devotional bhajans. This is a unique opportunity to hear one of India’s great musicians.
As customary in khyal performances, Sahasrabuddhe will be accompanied by tabla and harmonium.
