Following a recent focus on Beethoven and Sibelius, including invited lectures for the International Beethoven Conference in Bonn and the Taiwan Musicology Forum (online), Tina K. Ramnarine spent this summer directing a project on ‘Decolonising Folk’. The project aimed to highlight the transnational aspects of folk music and 5 undergraduate students participated with funds from a Royal Holloway placement scheme. Tina K. Ramnarine, who is Professor of Music at Royal Holloway, also gave talks for the UK Folk Education Network and the Nordic branch of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music. In November she will deliver a keynote lecture on ‘Transnational folk’ for the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library Conference.
