The School of Society and Culture at the University of Plymouth is
delighted to host the British Forum for Ethnomusicology and Royal Musical
Association Research Students’ Conference from January 6 to 8, 2022. The
conference is planned to take place in Plymouth and delegates are expected
to present in-person, in order to allow for the maximum benefit of
networking and social interaction (subject to government guidelines). We
welcome UK and international postgraduates to present their research and
compositions in an inclusive, friendly, and supportive atmosphere. The
conference will include papers, panels, lecture-recitals, instrumental and
electroacoustic composition workshops, specialist sessions (e.g. research
skills, careers, etc.), social and networking events, and satellite
activities. Note that there will be a very limited number of individual
online paper presentations for those unable to travel due to SARS-CoV-2
restrictions; panels, lecture-recitals and compositions are planned to be
entirely held in Plymouth.

The Research Students’ Conference is an opportunity for postgraduate
students to share their work with a wide audience and to foster
interdisciplinary connections across a variety of musical disciplines.
Presentation and composition proposals can relate to any aspect of musical
research including, but not limited to, musicology, ethnomusicology, music
psychology, composition, audiovisual media, performance, creative
practices, and research that cuts across disciplinary boundaries. We are
delighted that The Hermes Experiment will be workshopping research
students’ compositions. The electroacoustic composition workshop will be
led by the Computer Music pioneer Professor Eduardo Miranda.

We are pleased to announce that the keynote lectures will be delivered by:

Amada Hsieh (Chinese University of Hong Kong), winner of the Jerome Roche
Prize, on behalf of the RMA
Lindsey Copeland (University of Toronto), winner of the BFE Early Career
Prize, on behalf of the BFE
