Conference Organisation

HSM, Academy of Music & Drama
University of Gothenburg
Fågelsången 1
405 30 Göteborg


The main venue for the PARSE Conference is the Academy of Music and Drama, which is one of the three departments at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, at the University of Gothenburg.
 The Faculty, as its full title implies, provides education in almost all artistic forms and genres. Doctoral programmes were introduced in 2000, and artistic research is being conducted within all the various arts forms and in cross-disciplinary and cross-Faculty networks. Being part of a comprehensive university has facilitated interdisciplinary research initiatives that place artistic researchers within multi-disciplinary research projects. In recent years, the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts has further strengthened its research environment and culture through enhanced collaboration with international research communities and networks, as well as through fostering external research partnerships in the different arts fields.
