The editors welcome articles on a broad range of issues that are connected to the pursuit of Irish music and dance research. This includes interdisciplinary approaches to these and other related genres of performing arts practice. We would encourage submissions from the academic community, especially younger academics and post-graduate students and also from the general communities of practice and research. We would ask contributors to utilize the multi-media properties of the internet where appropriate. We would encourage all submissions that are critically creative, whether they be traditional articles, performances pieces or multi-sensory, cross platform presentations.

Occasional, thematic special issues are envisaged. If you would like to suggest one of these or be involved in their presentation please contact the general editor.
