About Us

We are a group mainly comprised of postgraduate and early career ethnomusicology researchers based around the world. We come together online once per week to discuss articles published in journals such as Ethnomusicology Forum, Ethnomusicology, and Yearbook for Traditional Music, as well as book chapters and other innovative outputs. All who share an interest in the discipline are welcome.

The group was founded by Kate Walker and Helen Gubbins, two PhD students at the University of Sheffield. Kate and Peter Underwood (independent scholar) currently manage the group. We meet using Skype to enable researchers in all locations to take part. While the discussion group takes place on a weekly basis, participants are welcome to ‘drop-in’ according to their availability.
