The Call for Proposals for the upcoming 2019 BFE / RMA Research Students’ Conference, which will be hosted by the University of Sheffield, is now available. Click on the following link to the conference web page for further details:

The BFE / RMA Research Students’ Conference is sponsored jointly by the British Forum for Ethnomusicology and the Royal Musical Association. Open to postgraduates studying in the UK or abroad, the conference provides an opportunity for research students to meet together in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, to gain experience of the conference environment (as listeners, participants, and chairs), to present and to hear papers, to take part in workshops, and to gain insights into the profession. Each year, the programme includes skills training sessions, student papers, composition and performance workshops, concerts, and social events. We hope to see many of you there!

The Call For Papers is now open for the 2018 BFE/RMA Study Day, to be held on 8th December at the University of Oxford. The topic of this conference will be ‘Music and the Internet’. Proposals are invited for papers of 20-minutes, which will each be followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The keynote address will be given by Professor Georgina Born and the day will conclude with a roundtable on digital research methodologies. We particularly welcome papers by graduate students and early career researchers. For more details, click on the following link:
