Note that a number of sessions will be devoted to methodological workshops.
The workshop sessions are built on the idea of “master-classes” in musical studies, where two more experienced researchers will meet a small number of junior researchers to discuss issues regarding the use of a particular methodological strategy or method. Emphasis will be put on questions raised by young researchers whose research will be treated as case studies to generate and engage in relevant methodological issues. Once selected to take part in a workshop session, junior researchers will be asked to introduce their research project in a summary sheet (2 to3 pages-max, double-spaced 12 pointtype) ; it will focus on particular difficulties or methodological issues that have arisen in their research and/or field experiences which researchers would like to be explored in the workshop.
