I am exploring the history of the Khiam Detention Centre in Southern Lebanon (1985-2006) and the artistic tactics employed since to represent the traumatic experience of a detention camp as well as the challenges associated with the commemoration of its history. The Khiam Detention Centre was a prison and interrogation camp during the years of the Israeli occupation.

How can Independent Black Publishing make a positive impact within the creative industry? This project will examine the history of small and Independent Black Publishers in Britain, starting with the first issue of RACE, published in 1960 by the Institute of Race Relations and concluding in the 1990s.

Most modern philosophies of Music Education acknowledge that both improvisation and composition are important pedagogical tools; that said, my research proposes a novel educational approach to these invaluable crafts. My key argument is that improvisation and composition can indeed become self-improving procedures, provided that learners and teachers continually search for radically new musicalities and remain indifferent to the legislation of established musicianships.
