New Committee Members

The British Forum for Ethnomusicology is delighted to announce that Barley Norton (Goldsmiths College) has agreed to be the next BFE Chair. The committee co-opted Barley on 30 June 2014 in the new role of BFE Chair Elect to ensure a smooth transition in 2015 when Amanda Villepastour’s term draws to a close.

Our sincere thanks goes to Suzel Reily and Henry Stobart, who will be stepping down this year as their terms conclude. Thank you for all your hard work and support.

We are also pleased to announce that Lyndsey Hoh (DPhil candidate, Oxford) has been elected as our incoming Student Liaison. On behalf of our membership, we offer warm congratulations to Lyndsey.

We thank James Butterworth for his service as Student Liaison on the BFE committee. James has been a proactive and creative committee member. We wish him the very best for his future professional ethnomusicological ventures.
