Past MPSG Events

P

The Study Group grew out of a Royal Musical Association Study Day (in association with the British Society of Aesthetics) on the topic of Music and Philosophy, held at King’s College London on 20 February 2010. In addition to official MPSG events, the Study Group also collaborates with other societies, to increase the number of opportunities for scholars to engage with one another in our inherently interdisciplinary field of inquiry.
