Joint SMI/ICTM Ireland Postgraduate Conference 2022

Joint SMI and ICTM-IE Postgraduate Conference 2022


The next jointly held annual postgraduate conference of the Society for Musicology in Ireland and the Irish National Committee of the International Council for Traditional Music will take place on 14-15 January 2022, and will be hosted by Dublin City University.


A call for papers has now been issued: download it here. The deadline for the submission of proposals is Monday 29 November 2021.


Further updates about the conference (its programme, details of registration, etc.) will be posted on this webpage in due course.


The conference committee warmly invites postgraduate students working in all areas of musical research to submit proposals for 20-minute papers or 30-minute lecture recitals. Poster presentations are also welcome. Areas of research include, but are not limited to, historical musicology, ethnomusicology, music theory and analysis, music technology, music pedagogy, popular music studies, musical practice as research, psychology of music, and music and gender. Master’s students are encouraged to submit proposals for 10-minute papers.


The 2022 conference will feature a keynote address from Dr Áine Mangaoang (University of Oslo) and the presentation of the biennial Alison Dunlop Graduate Prize. As with previous SMI/ICTM-IE postgraduate conferences, the programme will also include a Careers Forum and a dedicated session featuring prizewinners of the annual CHMHE competition for undergraduate dissertations.


The conference committee is planning for a blended format of both live and virtual sessions. As this is the first campus-based conference for ICTM Ireland and SMI since early 2020, participants based in Ireland and Northern Ireland are encouraged to attend in person, as far as is safe and possible.
