Dr Beate Peter
Thursday 9:00
Beate Peter is a musicologist with an interest in the sociology of music. Her main research focus concerns affective relationships that music can create and facilitate between people, between people and artefacts, and between people and absent artefacts. She places particular focus on the embodiment of these affective relationships and the ways in which digital music archives can uncover and represent them, something that she explored with the Lapsed Clubber Audio Map.

Beate is co-lead of the Music and Sonic Studies Group Manchester (MassMcr) and current chair of the Sound Studies Network at the Media, Communication and Cultural Studies Association (MeCCSA). Her latest publications include a discussion of dance as aesthetic subversion of the body politic in the GDR (DOI: and dance as source for popular music historiography (DOI:
