XXXVII European Seminar in Ethnomusicology

12-16 September 2022 – University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Austria

Joint Knowledge Production and Collaboration in Research

You are cordially invited to attend the 37th European Seminar in Ethnomusicology, hosted between 12 and 16 September 2022 by the Institute for Ethnomusicology, University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, Graz, Austria.


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.
