International Musicological Society Regional Association for East Asia (IMSEA)
Sixth Biennial Conference in Daegu, Korea
October 21–23, 2022

The Regional Association for East Asia of the International Musicological Society (IMSEA) invites proposals for its sixth biennial conference to be held in Daegu, Korea, from October 21 to October 23 in 2022. We welcome proposals from across various areas of music scholarship and beyond, including those reflecting historical, ethnographic, theoretical/analytical, sociological, and scientific methods. We would especially like to encourage presentations of an inter-disciplinary and/or inter-regional character.

Since its foundation in 2011, IMSEA has held biennial conferences in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Suzhou. The 2022 conference in Daegu, which was postponed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, will mark the association’s 10th anniversary. We hope this conference will be the occasion to celebrate the past, present, and future of the society and connect our community in East Asia with the global musicological network. We look forward to the dialogues and collaborations amongst scholars with diverse specialty areas, regions, and generations—at this conference and beyond.
