Internationales Netzwerk für Artistic Research in Jazz

 The network was established in 2019 in reaction to the increasing relevance of artistic perspectives in the academic discourses in jazz research. The network provides a platform for connection, knowledge exchange and quality assurance between artistic researchers in jazz worldwide.

The network organized two conferences so far:

  • 2019 at Jam Music Lab University Vienna, in cooperation with the Institute for Jazz Research at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz
  • 2021 online, in cooperation with the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

In 2021 the network will present its work at panel discussions at the Documenting Jazz Conference and the Australian Jazz and Improvisation Research Network Conference. Another panel discussion is planned at the Jazz Re:Search in 21st-Century Academia and Beyond Conference in Graz.
