Brief Description of INET-md
INET-md is a transdisciplinary research center dedicated to the study of music and dance. It aims to consolidate the work being developed in the past three decades by investing in emerging lines of inquiry to address new transdisciplinary research challenges, which, in addition to the academic community, involve national and international institutions and communities, artists and policymakers. 
In the following years, ongoing research themes will be further pursued, namely those related to historical studies of music and dance practices and heritage, the study of music and dance as embodied social practices, decolonial perspectives on worldwide cultural flows in the fields of music and dance, experimental approaches in artistic research and sound studies, and the study of formal and non-formal teaching/learning practices and theories.
While nurturing its past successful engagement with these topics, INET-md is strongly committed in the introduction of new research perspectives and topics, which will rely on its unique constitution, integrating a wide range of artistic fields as well as theoretical and practice-based approaches.
