IASPM conference at Salford

Some images from the IASPM conference, hosted by the University of Salford at the MediaCityUK campus last week.

Guests included Sheila Whiteley, Bill Bruford and Barney Hoskyns (on his new book on Led Zeppelin), and a number of past and present Salford postrgrads presented papers.

Panels included a presentation by the Salford postgrads currently working on the David Sanjek Archive.

Message from Matt Brennan, Chair IASPM-UK/Ireland:

On behalf of the new IASPM-UK/Ireland executive committee, I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone involved in making the 2012
conference in Salford such a wonderful success. Thanks in particular in Professor George McKay and all those at the University of Salford
for their hard work, excellent hospitality, and for providing a great venue to hold the conference. It must have been a particular challenge due to the sad passing of Professor David Sanjek late last year, but I think everyone will agree that he would have been pleased that the conference went ahead so swimmingly and with such a great variety of speakers, intellectual debate, and the friendliness that characterises IASPM as an organisation.
