Doctoral student Jack Talty is the recipient of an Irish Research Council Postgraduate Scholarship Award for his study entitled Exploring Fifty Years of Institutionalisation in the Transmission, Pedagogy and Performance of Irish Traditional Music in Irish Higher Education from 1963 to 2013. This study looks at the relationship between the ‘Ivory Tower’ – a metaphor for the university, commonly misconceived as being removed from reality and social contact with others (Phillips and Pugh 2000) and the ‘Commons’ – the perceived ‘community-owned’ practices of Irish traditional music (McCann 2001; Smith 2006). New discourse is offered to the ethnomusicological record to present a critique of prevailing perceptions on the intra-communal relationship between academic and extra-academic representations of Irish traditional music discourse, pedagogy, transmission and performance.
