Music and Spirituality Symposium

Keynote Speakers

Program and Abstracts

Music and Spirituality, our much anticipated online symposium held on 13 to 14 September 2021 was a great success involving 19 universities from around the world with presentations from Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Iran, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Malta, North America and the United Kingdom. Two quotes sum up the central themes of the Symposium: “We can travel to God by bus or foot, but the quickest way is through music” (Dr Banu Şenay, University of Macquarie) and “When it comes to love, there is no border” (Dr Polina Dessiatnitchenko, Waseda University).

We are pleased that our Symposium recordings from DAY 1 are now available for public viewing:
