We are pleased to announce the fourth Doctoral Student Forum for Music Education in Nicosia, Cyprus. Now included as a part of the programme for the 2014 EAS Conference, the Forum takes place from 20 to 22 May, 2014. It begins on the day prior to the main conference and participants will also be included in the main conference programme.
The aims of the Forum are:
- to give doctoral students, at any stage of their studies, an opportunity to present,share, and discuss their work in a supportive environment
- to give students opportunities to discuss methodological and theoretical issues related to research in music education
- for students in the early stages of their studies to gain feedback on their ideas and plans
- to enable students to join the EAS network which can provide valuable sources of support, knowledge and professional contacts
The Forum sessions will include peer led discussion and workshops given by Dr Mary Stakelum (University of Reading, UK) and Dr Thade Buchborn (Musikgymnasium Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Berlin, Germany).
There are 10 places available. Details of how to apply can be found on www.eas-music.org.
The deadline for application is 31 January 2014.
All participating students will contribute a poster to be exhibited on the first day to facilitate discussion. These will be designed to present plans, initial findings or frameworks.
Guidance on poster presentation can be found on www.eas-music.org. An e-book of abstracts will be distributed to all participants in advance of the Forum. Participants whose papers have been accepted for presentation in the main conference are offered verbal feedback following the session, or in written form via email as soon as possible afterwards.
Costs and Accommodation
The fee for participation in the Doctoral Student Forum is €100.
This includes attendance at the EAS conference, and admission to concerts and exhibitions organised during the conference. In addition to this, participants get free membership of EAS for one year. We expect that students will be funded by their own institutions.
