International workshop for doctoral students in ethnomusicology

12th PhD Student Workshop 2022 from 21st to 24th June
Centre for World Music of the University of Hildesheim in cooperation with the University of Music and Drama Hannover

After two years of pandemic, the international workshop for doctoral students in ethnomusicology can take place in Hildesheim again.

This year, young ethnomusicologists from Chicago, Berkely, Illinois (USA), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Alberta (Canada), Weimar, Berlin, Essen, Maiduguri (Nigeria), Belgrade (Serbia), Cape Coast (Ghana), Helsinki (Finland), Bayonne (France), Sydney (Australia), Limerick (Ireland) and London will travel to Hildesheim.

Young academics from many parts of the world travel to northern Germany to report on their research: the Hanover University of Music and the University of Hildesheim Foundation support young researchers. For eight years, they have been developing a doctoral student network in ethnomusicology. So far, more than 160 young experts have taken part in the workshops. Once a year, they meet for a week at the Center for World Music in Hildesheim. The CWM has thus also been able to establish itself abroad as an important institution for the promotion of young researchers.
