The Centre of Voice Studies serves as an interdisciplinary hub for those who work on voice(s) and is open to both academics and non-academics. With members from a wide range of disciplines (e.g. history, media studies, musicology, phonetics, sociolinguistics), we provide events aimed to expose our members to a range of disciplinary perspectives on voice(s). We aim to learn from each other and inspire each other, and we very much hope that the centre's emergent network will lead to meaningful inter-/cross-disciplinary, as well as disciplinary, collaboration on funded and non-funded projects.
