Women and Traditional / Folk Music : Research Symposium

9th February 2019, Galway
National University of Ireland, Galway
Deadline for proposals: 15 September 2018

Recent social action movements, in Ireland and elsewhere, draw stark attention to the question of equality in areas of cultural production and the workplace. Responding to these initiatives, and in particular the work of FairPlé, which seeks gender balance in Irish traditional and folk music, this one-day research symposium provides an opportunity to explore, challenge and respond to the focused theme of ‘Women and traditional / folk music’.

With the aim of encouraging further research and debate in this area, the symposium welcomes the participation of academics, musicians and singers, researchers, listeners and those involved with the production, promotion and dissemination of traditional and folk music. We are seeking proposals for individual papers, roundtables, film screenings, posters and performances which pertain to the topic women and traditional / folk music.

Proposals would be especially welcome in, but not limited to, the following areas:

Hierarchies and power dynamics in traditional and folk music

Gender and instrumentation

FairPlé – responses, reactions, critiques

Strategies of equal opportunity and diversity within traditional and folk music

Disrupting/maintaining gender divisions and the State 

Media and traditional / folk music

Historical perspectives

Empirical research on participation in traditional and folk music

Traditional / folk music: experience and participation

Documenting experience and participation in traditional and folk music

Traditional / folk music and the music industry

Career development and professionalisation in traditional and folk music
