RMA/KVNM Postgraduate Proceedings 2020


We are excited to announce the first RMA/KVNM Postgraduate Proceedings, published digitally and in Open Access. The collection came together because of the changes foisted on us by Covid-19 as the 2nd KVNM-RMA International Postgraduate Symposium had to be cancelled. It was intended to follow a successful first edition of this symposium in Amsterdam in 2019, which had been organised to create new connections between emerging researchers. The Dutch hospitality was reciprocated by the RMA, who invited KVNM postgraduate researchers to take part in the BFE/RMA Research Students’ Conference in 2020. As the next instalment of this collaboration was cancelled, the idea of a publication to celebrate the research submitted formalised. It was also an initiative to offer a platform to early-career musicologists and for forming coalitions among musicology graduates. The contributions to this volume have been peer selected by the editors.
