The next Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology, CIM22: ‘Participation’ will take place on 8-10 June 2022, convened by the Reid School of Music, The University of Edinburgh and the Department of Music, University of Hong Kong. 

Guided by the aims of the Society for Interdisciplinary Musicology (SIM), CIM22 offers a meeting point for music researchers at the crossroads of humanities and sciences. 

Keynote speakers:

  • Kyra Gaunt (Music & Theatre, University at Albany State University of New York, NY)
  • Ruth Herbert (School of Arts, University of Kent, UK)

To foster interdisciplinary dialogue, Keynote plenary sessions include cross-disciplinary Respondents.

Our theme of Participation invites cross-disciplinary reflection and dialogue across a range of current topics in music research which will benefit from the joint attention of both science and humanities expertise, to report new research from scholars and practitioners at all career stages.
