International Doctoral Workshop in Ethnomusicology

Sixth International Doctoral Workshop in Ethnomusicology
25–29 June 2014

The Center for World Music at the University of Hildesheim and the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media are pleased to announce the sixth 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 ethnomusicological research. 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 25 June and departure on 29 June. The workshop language – presentations and discussion – will be English.

PhD candidates interested in participating should send an abstract (250 words) of their PhD project and a short CV (two pages maximum) by 30 September 2013. Notification of the success of applications will be sent in late October. Auditors are also welcome and should register by 5 May 2014, but room and board will be at their own expense.

Please send all applications and enquiries to Dr. Thomas Hilder:
