Voices: Postgraduate Perspectives on Inter-disciplinarity was created out of a compilation of papers presented at the University of Aberdeen s annual College of arts and Social Sciences Postgraduate Conference, more widely known as Moving Forward. This conference reached its sixth year in 2009. Both the conference and proposed collection incorporate the colleges of Divinity, History and Philosophy; Education; Language and Literature; Law; Social Sciences; Music and Business. Moving Forward is an annual event, sponsored by the College of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Aberdeen, and the Roberts Fund. Given the variety of papers received for, and the number of disciplines involved in this project, it was deemed that a theme of voice would be particularly appropriate. This theme attempts to incorporate the interdisciplinary approach taken both within the selection of papers, and within the papers themselves. Voice is approached in a variety of manners, not only referring to the sound produced from the human vocal cords, or the literary tool of an author, but also through the works of a musical artist, or by using unique research methods to understand the perspectives of those lacking a public voice. This work seeks to demonstrate an entire range of what voices may do, and how they are experienced.
