26th – 29th June 2013
The Center for World Music at the University of Hildesheim and the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media are pleased to announce the fifth annual workshop for PhD candidates in ethnomusicology. Through paper presentations, discussions and working groups, the workshop offers a unique environment for 16 doctoral students to engage in international dialogue and exchange, and expand critical debate on recent research within the discipline. The workshop will be directed by Prof. Dr. Philip V. Bohlman (Chicago/Hanover), Prof. Dr. Raimund Vogels (Hildesheim/Hanover), and Dr. Thomas R. Hilder (Hildesheim).
The organisers invite applications from PhD candidates researching in the field of ethnomusicology or a related discipline. There are no restrictions concerning the current stage of research, the region of study, or the thematic focus. Room and board will be covered by the Center for World Music and Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media, but participants are expected to secure funding to cover travel costs themselves. The workshop will take place in Hildesheim, with arrival on 26th June and departure on 30th June. The workshop language – presentations and discussion – will be English.
PhD candidates interested in participating should send an abstract of 250 words and a short CV (two pages maximum) by 30th November 2012. Notification of the success of your application will be sent in early January. Auditors are also welcome and must register by 3rd May 2013, but room and board will be at their own expense.
