I am very lucky to have been asked to contribute, together with my former supervisor Tia DeNora, a chapter to the book “Oxford Handbook of New Audiovisual Aesthetics” published by Oxford University Press.

I am very pleased to have had a paper accepted by Voices: World forum for Music Therapy . The paper is entitled “Expanding a care network for people with dementia and their carers through musicking: Participant observation with ‘Singing for the Brain'” and is based on data from my PhD research on the use of music in dementia care. The article will be published in the 2011 July issue.
