Iverson takes a hard look at what and why we do what we do when we teach jazz. Uncomfortable truths must be spoken. Since this is a European audience, the lecture will encompass European musical history as well as American musical history.

What can we all do to make space for women in music? Patsy Gilbert will discuss some of the key areas that make it difficult for women to progress in the industry, as well as some of the more complex issues surrounding what ‘progress’ really means. The second half of this talk will focus on some practical strategies to make change in our own artistic practices and how this work has begun at Leeds Conservatoire (Formerly Leeds College of Music).

The Fire This Time

This lecture uses concise examples to introduce central themes in African American music, literature, and cultural politics. The experience of discrimination, racism, and sexism and the development of strategies of resistance and survival are fundamental to the production and reception of African American culture.

Using interview and music examples on topics such as Strange Fruit, We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite, Fables of Faubus, Alabama, Malcolm, Malcolm – Semper Malcolm, A Love Supreme, Why (The King Of Love Is Dead), Vietnam: The Aftermath, As Serious As Your Life to Black Lives Matter, a social-historical panorama of African American culture is presented.
