17:00 - SEMINAR - UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Seminar Series - Joshua Bamford : Music as a tool for social bonding: from 6 MYA to the COVID-19 era Website | More Information
The Conservatorium of Music is a vibrant centre for research in music and music education, where a thriving community of scholars is engaged in exploring the frontiers of knowledge, working on a wide range of research projects with diverse outputs.

Our free weekly seminar series showcases presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.

1 Sept - Joshua Bamford | Music as a tool for social bonding: from 6 MYA to the COVID-19 era

Abstract: A growing body of literature suggests that synchronised activity (such as in music and dance) may lead to social bonding between individuals and within groups – known as the synchrony-bonding effect. This effect may have given rise to the array of synchronised activity present in all human cultures, as a replacement for the social grooming behaviour that is used to establish bonds in most other primates. Music and dance may be more efficient than grooming by allowing interaction with multiple others simultaneously, and at a distance. In my current research, I investigate the precise cognitive mechanisms that underpin the synchrony-bonding effect, attempting to explain why humans enjoy being in synchrony with others, leading to increased trust and feelings of affiliation. However, COVID restrictions have raised new questions about how people maintain social bonds in times of social distancing. In light of our “new normal”, I will discuss contemporary approaches of music making that attempt to overcome zoom-induced asynchrony.

Bio: An alumnus of UWA, Joshua Bamford's research on the origins of musicality have taken him to Finland, Austria and, most recently, to the UK where he is pursuing a DPhil in Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Oxford. He is currently in Perth as a visiting researcher at the UWA School of Psychological Science. In his spare time he sings opera, conducts folk song choirs, and goes swing dancing.

We invite visitors to join us for a Friday Talk by Amelia Birch titled 'Intrepid Expatriates: The works of Agnes Goodsir and Romaine Brooks'.

In the first few decades of the twentieth century an artistic community of lesbian expatriates flourished in Paris, their numbers small but their creative output far-reaching. In this talk Amelia Birch focuses on two of these artists, Australian-born Agnes Goodsir and American Romaine Brooks, exploring the significance of their lives and work and why their innovation deserves closer attention. After working in theatre for several years in London, Amelia returned to Perth for further study and nicer weather. She is currently completing her Honours year in History of Art at UWA, where her research is addressing women’s self-representation through portraiture in the first half of the twentieth century.
