The Music and Online Cultures Research Network (MOCReN) invites Early Career Researchers and Postgraduate Research students working across music, cultural studies and related disciplines to participate in our inaugural in-person meeting at the University of Salford.

Alongside structured sessions mapping the terrain of an emerging scholarly field, including everything from streaming services to web-based communities and the challenges and opportunities presented by AI, this one-day symposium will provide an opportunity to establish links between new-generation researchers, with the aim of sharing expertise and fostering future collaborations.

The programme will feature a keynote from Dr Holly Rogers (Goldsmiths) and a methods workshop led by Jenessa Williams (Leeds) and Dr Edward Katrak Spencer (Oxford/Manchester), as well as a roundtable discussion on the ethics and objectives of researching music and online cultures. No prior knowledge or experience is necessary, only an active research interest in how music is mediated, shared and consumed online.
