The International Musicological Society Regional Association for East Asia (IMSEA) warmly invites all music researchers to submit proposals for our fifth biennial conference, to be hosted by the School of Music at Soochow University, China. We welcome all topics of musical scholarship, including those reflecting historical, ethnographic, analytical, sociological, and cognitive methods,and would especially like to encourage presentations of an inter-disciplinary and/or inter-regional character. Participants need not currently reside or work in East Asia.
Our region is one of the fastest growing in the discipline of musicology, and features diverse yet distinctive native musical traditions as well as rich histories of intercultural encounters and a strong international consciousness. We look forward to offering a rewarding environment for intellectual exchanges among scholars from a wide range of backgrounds.
