About Us

We are a group of postgraduate and early career ethnomusicology researchers based in Europe and North America. We come together once per week to discuss recent articles published in journals such as Ethnomusicology Forum, Ethnomusicology, and Yearbook for Traditional Music. 

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.
