ICTM Ireland Annual Conference

18th-20th February 2011 'LISTENING'

University of Ulster, Magee campus,


The University of Ulster, Magee campus, is proud to host the first ICTM Ireland conference to be held in Northern Ireland. The occasion will see the presentation of over twenty scholarly papers from all over Ireland, Europe and beyond. Focussed on the theme of 'listening' these papers, short films and recordings will explore the social, psychological, political and aesthetic significance of using music in everyday life.

Our keynote speaker will be Thomas Turino, professor of Musicology and Anthroplology at the University of Illinois, author of Music as Social Life: the Politics of Participation (2008) amongst a number of important publications. He will be introduced by Dr Suzel Reily (Queen's University, Belfast), and also contributing to the event will be Dr Caroline Bithell (University of Manchester and Chair of British forum for Ethnomusicology).

The conference will be preceded on the Friday evening by the Annual General Meeting of ICTM Ireland, which all members in good standing are urged to attend. Saturday evening will feature the keynote speech, the conference dinner, and much contagious merriment.
