IMR Conference Grants Series
The IMR introduced the Conference Grants Series in 2017/18, replacing the Distinguished Lecture Series. The grants help facilitate the organising of one-day workshops, study days, or conferences to be held at Senate House, in central London, while events themselves are designed to address urgent or contemporary issues within the field of music studies. Details of this year's (and last year’s) events can be found below.
The 2019/20 call for Conference Grant applications will be announced in early Summer 2019.
