CMPCP offered Visiting Fellowships on a competitive basis to musicologists, musicians and those working in cognate fields from the UK and overseas who wished to spend up to three months undertaking collaborative research at one or more of the Centre’s partner institutions, i.e. University of Cambridge, King’s College London, University of Oxford, and Royal Holloway, University of London. Visiting Fellows had the opportunity to gain exposure to CMPCP’s research activities, to share their work with CMPCP staff and students both at the institution where they were based and throughout CMPCP, and to contribute to the activities supported by the Performance Studies Network. Each Visiting Fellow was able to claim for eligible maintenance expenses incurred during the period of the Fellowship up to a stated maximum; relevant travel costs to and/or within the UK were also reimbursed. Applicants for Visiting Fellowships were expected to have completed a doctorate or to have equivalent professional experience prior to applying. The Visiting Fellowship scheme was divided into five phases. Information about the Visiting Fellows can be found here.
Nine of CMPCP’s Visiting Fellows produced the following reports summarising their activities and achievements and outlining future possibilities emerging from their residencies at CMPCP.
