Conservatoire Lectures and Talks
Tickets available on the door
Rachel Harris lectures on Chinese music at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, and has been closely involved with issues of Intangible Cultural Heritage in China, from advisory work for UNESCO through to fieldwork in rural Xinjiang.
Taking a range of case studies from Kunqu opera to the Uyghur Twelve Muqam, she considers the transformations which these items of heritage have undergone since their acceptance into UNESCO’s system of preservation, in terms of context and style, aesthetics and meanings.
