Critical Texts Study Group, first Wednesday of each month from February 2017

As part of the SMI's upcoming student events, the SMI Critical Texts Study Group 2017 will take place on the first Wednesday of each month beginning February 2017. Interested student members are invited to participate at a SMI Critical Text Study Group which will be chaired by Anja Bunzel and hosted by the Royal Irish Academy of Music on the first Wednesday of each month, starting in February 2017.
The group will meet from 18:00–20:00 on the following dates:
• 1 February 2017;
• 1 March 2017;
• 5 April 2017;
• 3 May 2017; and
• 7 June 2017.

This study group aims to provide an informal environment for collaboration and discussion amongst graduate students throughout Ireland. Possible themes for discussion include, but are not limited to, music & text, music & culture, performance studies, popular music studies, and the self-image of musicology as a discipline. A list of possible texts for discussion will be published before the meetings commence. There will also be opportunities at these meetings to discuss research problems, themes, methodologies, or any challenges which might come up during individual projects.
This study group is free to attend for all members of the SMI. In order to have an idea of numbers please get in touch with Anja Bunzel (anja.bunzel.2013@mumail.ie) or via Facebook (Society for Musicology in Ireland).
Questions and/ or suggestions of any kind are most welcome. For further details on both events please check the SMI website and/ or Facebook page where updates will be posted on a regular basis.
