New guitar research group makes Sidney Sussex its home.

The Consortium for Guitar Research is a new research group that will be based at Sidney Sussex College. The group seeks to contribute to global research into the history of the guitar, and publishes papers relating to the social, musical and organological history of all instruments called 'guitars' before the twentieth century. The first set of papers will appear in Soundboard, the journal of the Guitar Foundation of America, in December, 2012. A second set is planned for a special issue of Early Music, published by Oxford University Press, in October, 2013. The CGR is an affiliate of the Royal Musical Association.
