Interdisciplinary Faculty Affiliates in Music Scheme

The Interdisciplinary Faculty Affiliates in Music Scheme (IFAM) augments the scope of UCC’s Department of Music by creating an extended network of music and sound scholars who serve in other departments across UCC.  These Affiliated Faculty in Music (by Courtesy) are invited to participate in research forums, special events and conferences, serve on postgraduate thesis committees, join music-centered research clusters, and otherwise enrich the interdisciplinary conversations around music, sound, and performance studies at UCC.  IFAM, thus reaches out to Departments and Programs including History, French, Sociology, Computer Science, Folklore, English, Asian Studies, Digital Arts and Humanities, and the Study of Religions to make connections across the disciplines, bring new perspectives to the study of music, grow our family of sound scholars at UCC, establish UCC as the top center for interdisciplinary music studies in Ireland and the UK, and push interdisciplinary music studies forward internationally.
