Researchers in Residence/Festa do Jazz 2016
Researchers in Residence is brought together by the collaboration between the Institute of Ethnomusicology (INET-md)/FCSH/Univ. Nova de Lisboa, Universidade Lusíada and the Association Lusophone Sounds/Festa do Jazz.
The project aims to create awareness of the need for building cooperation between those who make, promote, teach, research and study jazz, and is intended to promote ways to contextualize and develop collaborative work.
In recent years, jazz in Portugal has experienced an exponential growth and internationalisation in the fields of education, production, promotion and research. However, this development has not been conducted under common strategies or sustained in the work produced by academic research and knowledge exchange from daily practices on the ground.
Researchers in Residence is a series of two sessions designed for sharing knowledge and ideas for a more sustained growth of jazz in Portugal and within the European context: promotion and networking; jazz and identities; and jazz education.
The project features researchers within the area of jazz studies from Birmingham City University, Edinburgh Napier University and INET-md (U. Nova and U.A.).
