University of Lincoln is proud to host the 2020 British Forum for Ethnomusicology One Day conference. This year’s conference will focus on music and music enterprise in times of crisis. Directly linked to this year's abrupt changes throughout the world, affecting all areas and highlighting deeper economic, social and cultural issues, this conference will examine how musicians and the various roles in the music industry shift and adapt in catastrophic times. It seeks to highlight the resourcefulness of the music industries through a range of ethnomusicological, historical, geographical and methodological lenses.

Building upon the concept of ‘economic ethnomusicology’, this conference is an opportunity to examine and discuss the mechanisms in place to support the arts, innovative ways that performing artists have been responding to the complete annihilation of their livelihoods, and alternative creative outlets which can be used to maintain artist profiles and/or attempt to generate some income. Last but not least, this pandemic provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon our practice as ethnomusicologists in difficult times.

The One-Day conference will be held entirely online on Zoom. The format will vary slightly from usual in-person conferences, with shorter papers. Ample time will be made for questions and interactive participation between all delegates. The small fee required for registration will cover the keynote speaker fee (see website) as well as the cost for the digital platform. Any further proceeds will go towards the BFE and its various funding schemes.
