SMI Music Theses Register

The SMI Music Theses Register is a searchable database, established in 2007 and relaunched in 2019 in a revised and rebuilt version, of completed and in-progress postgraduate theses in the fields of musicology, ethnomusicology, music education, music technology, music therapy, performance, analysis, composition etc. It is an ongoing project and submissions for qualifying entries are invited. Theses are included on the following criteria:

  • those of members of the Society for Musicology in Ireland;
  • those completed or in progress at universities and third-level colleges in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland;
  • those completed or in progress at universities elsewhere which relate in some way to music and music-making in Ireland or the music of Ireland, past or present;
  • undergraduate dissertations of original research merit.

Enquiries may be directed to the manager of the Register, Dr Áine Mulvey, at
