The Musicians' Union: A Social History
Visit project website
Funded by: AHRC, ESRC
Main contact: Professor Martin Cloonan
Start date: 2012
Music - School of Culture and Creative Arts, College of Arts
Drawing on a range of sources including the Union’s own archives, housed at the University of Stirling, and interviews with participants, we hope to reflect the manner in which the Union has played a significant part in the shaping of musical, cultural and political life in the UK throughout its history. To date has been a largely unexplored narrative, often consigned to a footnote in other more general accounts, and it is our aim to redress this balance with a number of publications (including at least one book), various conference papers as well as a conference and exhibition to be held in Glasgow in 2016.
