12-16.09.2022 | Graz, Austria | Institute for Ethnomusicology, University of Music and Performing Arts Graz
The European Seminar in Ethnomusicology (ESEM) is a platform for professional scholars and advanced students in ethnomusicology. ESEM was founded in 1981 in Belfast by the late Prof. John Blacking (1928-90) as a European network for ethnomusciologists, but welcomes scholars and topics from all over the world. ESEM also functions as platform for exchanging news on recent events, publications, job offers etc.


  • Joint knowledge production and collaboration in research

The topic aims at exploring possible collaborations in research processes. This can include cooperation with expert individuals or communities of practice (online and onsite, local and translocal), as well as academic collaborations with any other field oriented towards inter- and transdisciplinary research. The aim is to cast light on new potentials and expanded possibilities, but also to identify possible challenges and disadvantages that might result from such approaches. Presentations can also address questions regarding alternatives to historically transmitted methods of knowledge gathering that provide for the establishment of joint, collaborative modes of knowledge production, storage, communication, and publication.


Even though proposals related to the Seminar’s theme will be preferred, submissions about other topics of interest for ESEM will be also considered.

  • Individual Paper
