RMA/KVNM Postgraduate International Research Symposium in Musicology

Saturday 29 June 2019, University Library, Amsterdam

Postgraduate research is a vital part of the musicological discipline, and holds the potential to change engagements with music in new and important ways. With the recent growth of musicological research in conservatoires and broadening of the subject in universities, research students have been engaging with a wider range of approaches and perspectives to the subject than before. This event, organised in cooperation with the two oldest musicological organisations in the world, the UK Royal Musical Association (RMA) and the Dutch Koninklijke Vereniging voor Nederlandse Muziekgeschiedenis (KVNM), aims to bring together postgraduate researchers from both universities and conservatoires in The Netherlands, Belgium, and the UK for a knowledge exchange that aims to future develop national and international collaborations across the field.

Proposals from MA students and PhD researchers are encouraged from any discipline, including but not limited to historical musicology, ethnomusicology, performance studies, composition, music psychology, and music education. Papers should be 15 minutes long, and will be followed by questions from the audience. Abstracts of up to 300 words, along with AV requirements, institution, paper length, and a biography of up to 100 words should be sent to KVNMRMA@gmail.com. The deadline for submissions is midnight on 6 May 2019.

The RMA has kindly offered a three bursaries for students in the fields of historical musicology, 21st-century musicology and ethnomusicology, and practice-based research (composition and performance) to cover the travel costs for members travelling from the UK. Students willing to be considered for this are asked to send in their abstracts by midnight on 8 April 2019.

Organising committee:

Núria Bonet (Plymouth University, RMA)

Rutger Helmers (University of Amsterdam)

Michiel Kamp (Utrecht University)

Petra van Langen (KVNM)
