This is followed by a series of presentations where three panellists share their experiences of dealing with a range of ethical concerns in various research projects, that include Gendered Experiences of the Irish Music Industries, the EU HERA project FestiVersities and the IRC project Musical Futures in Ireland.

The second part of the study day involves participants workshopping research scenarios in small groups with the panellists. Participants are free to bring their own research scenarios with them or to work on proposals devised by the workshop facilitators.

Areas of expertise covered by the workshop facilitators include musicology; music education; popular music studies; music industry studies; festival studies; and music and anthropology.
