Welcome from Simon McKerrell, Chair of the BFE
The British Forum for Ethnomusicology (BFE) aims to advance the study of musical life in its full richness and diversity.
We provide a forum for engaging in debate and sharing the findings of research through our many conferences and study days and through the publication of our journal Ethnomusicology Forum, in association with Routledge.
We offer awards to recognize outstanding scholarship, including the BFE Book Prize and grants and prizes for student members.
Membership is open to anyone interested in the study of music and dance from all parts of the world. If you are interested in becoming a BFE member please click here for information about the benefits of membership.
Thanks for visiting our website and please contact us if you would like to know more.
