Review of "Current Trends in Ethnomusicology" 2012

The Fourth International Doctoral Workshop: Current Trends in Ethnomusicological Research was held from 27th to 30th June at the recently established the Center for World Music (CWM), University of Hildesheim, Germany. The workshop emerged as a collaboration between the CWM and the Hanover University of Music, Media and Drama. Sixteen doctoral students at various stages of their research came together for three full days of presentations and discussions that aimed to represent current research trends in the field of ethnomusicology. Directed by Prof. Philip V. Bohlman (Chicago/Hanover), Prof. Raimund Vogels (CWM/Hanover), organised by Dr. Thomas Hilder (CWM) and with a keynote address presented by Dr. Julio Mendívil (Hanover), the workshop was an excellent opportunity for doctoral students from across the world to come together in an intellectually stimulating environment.
