Finnish Doctoral Network for Music Research
The Finnish Doctoral Network for Music Research is comprised of eight universities: Sibelius Academy, the University of Helsinki, the Universities of Eastern Finland, Jyväskylä, Oulu, Tampere and Turku, and Åbo Akademi.
The central operating principle of the network is upholding the preceding Doctoral Programme in Music Research (2012–2015), that is, supporting national multidisciplinary research on music and the surrounding cultural reality.
NOTE: This network does not award doctoral degrees. It exists to further collaboration in doctoral studies and supervision between music research units in Finnish universities. If you are interested in doctoral studies in Finland, kindly contact the professor(s) working in university department(s) that appear most suitable for your topic and approach.Also, there are no funded doctoral student positions available in the network itself: all doctoral students within the network are post-graduate students of the partner universities.
null MuToVe winter school, December 7–9, 2021: call for papers
This year, the MuToVe winter school will be taking place from December 7–9 at Kallio-Kuninkala. All doctoral candidates involved in music research are eligible to apply.
The application form for the next winter school of the Finnish Doctoral Network for Music Research is now open online (https://www.lyyti.in/MuToVetalvikoulu_2021_9269/en, password: 21talvikoulu). The deadline is September 30, 2021, after which the applications will be sent to the professors of our partner universities, and subsequently ranked by them. Their proposed lists will be used to compile the group of attendees. We will inform all applicants of the decisions in October.
In the winter school, each participant will be presenting their doctoral project by preparing one article, thesis chapter, or similar paper (max. 20 pages), which will be sent to other attendees at least two weeks prior to the event. This way, we aim to ensure that there will be as much time for discussions and commentaries as possible. When filling out the application form, however, applicants are only asked to provide the working title of their paper, as well as a short description of their doctoral project and their research plan (including a preliminary table of contents).
The visiting scholars' lectures/workshops will continue the policy of the previous years: they touch upon questions that are shared by doctoral students of different areas of music research. More information on the winter school programme will be available in October-November. We will, of course, take into consideration all feedback from the previous events, as well as any suggestions or remarks in this form.
The deadline for this first round of applications is September 30, 2021, after which the applications will be sent to the professors of each partner university, and subsequently ranked by them. Their proposed lists will be used to compile the group of attendees.
The following costs of accepted presenting participants will be covered: traveling, meals, and accommodation during the event. Accommodation facilities in Kallio-Kuninkala are double or triple rooms.
The committee of the Doctoral Network will be following closely all instructions by the Finnish authorities and WHO regarding the COVID-19 situation. This time, the winter school will be taking place in Kallio-Kuninkala as usual, provided that governmental guidelines and potential restrictions allow it. If you will not be able to attend the event in Kallio-Kuninkala, we will do our best to enable online participation.
