About the Journal

This digital publication of conference proceedings presents the structured abstracts of research presentations accepted for inclusion in the thirteenth Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology, CIM22: Participation, which took place from June 8-10, 2022, in Edinburgh and online. In addition to the structured abstracts, we are delighted to include video links to presentations scheduled as part of the conference flashtalk sessions. These are available in all and only those cases where authors indicated consent.

The conference was jointly convened by the Universities of Edinburgh, UK and Hong Kong, UK, in association with SEMPRE, Society for Education, Music and Psychology Research.  The event was supported by RMA, the Royal Musicological Association, and by ESCOM, the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music, and through an ECA RKE award from The University of Edinburgh.

We are indebted to our sponsors’ guidance and financial backing, which enabled the organisers to offer high quality technical provision for this hybrid (online and in-person) event while maintaining accessible registration costs.  All sessions were made available as live video-stream for online audience, and captured for high quality, asynchronous replay by conference registrants within the conference dates and for one month afterwards.

The first Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology (CIM) took place in 2004 at the University of Graz, Austria. CIM has its own society, the Society for Interdisciplinary Musicology (SIM) and its own international peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of Interdisciplinary Music Studies (JIMS). CIM contributors are invited to become members in SIM, and to submit their work for peer-reviewed publication in JIMS.

CIM aims to treat equally all music researchers and all musically relevant disciplines, all musicological sub-disciplines and paradigms, and promotes epistemologically distant collaborations. Joint authorship is encouraged, especially where authors represent two of the following three groups: humanities, sciences, practically-oriented disciplines. Academic standards are promoted by anonymous peer review by independent international experts in relevant (sub-) disciplines. We particularly thank the CIM22 review committee for their time and expertise.
