KVNM-RMA International Postgraduate Symposium in Music Research 2021

KVNM-RMA International Postgraduate Symposium in Music Research

Date: 3 and 4 July 2021

Location: online (Zoom)
No registration fee, open to all

Postgraduate research is a vital part of the musicological discipline and holds the potential to change engagements with music in new and important ways. With the recent broadening of music research, both within a range of university disciplines, as well as in conservatories and beyond, early career researchers have been engaging with a wider variety of approaches to and perspectives on the subject than before. Additionally, interdisciplinary approaches increasingly centralise music as a research topic.


The two oldest musicological organisations in the world, the UK’s Royal Musical Association (RMA) and the Netherlands’ Koninklijke Vereniging voor Nederlandse Muziekgeschiedenis (KVNM), will bring together postgraduate researchers from the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK, with the aim of stimulating and developing national and international collaborations across the field. The two-day symposium will feature paper presentations showcasing current research related to music in the broadest sense.

Free registration for the symposium is now open. You can register and read the programme here.
