The Impact of Jazz: Britain in the '20s and '30s: Jazz and Everyday Life Panel
LONDON Southbank Centre / Level 5 Function Room
Part of a study day packed with enlightening talks and discussions on the historic impact of Jazz.
Jazz was the defining music of the interwar era, but in the final session of the Impact of Jazz join Dr Roger Fagge (University of Warwick), Professor Nick Gebhardt (Birmingham City University), Dr Tom Perchard (Goldsmiths, University of London) and Sarah Raine (Birmingham City University) to explore how jazz is part of people's everyday lives today. Focusing on the ordinary contexts in which we most often hear jazz, from supermarkets to advertising to airports, the panel will discuss the uses people make of it and the many ways they engage with it. This panel is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by researchers from Birmingham City University and Warwick University.
