The Musicological Discipline in East Asia: Practices, Trends, Topics

The Regional Association for East Asia of the International Musicological
Society (IMSEA) cordially welcomes submissions for the 2021 Virtual
Conference for Graduate Students and Early Career Scholars. This event
takes the place of the now postponed sixth biennial IMSEA conference in
Daegu, Korea (rescheduled to 2022), and is intended to provide a forum
specifically for junior scholars to share their research internationally
during the current calendar year.

Eligibility for participation: Presenters must be music researchers who are
enrolled in a doctoral study program or have received their doctoral
degrees no earlier than 2016. They need not reside, work, or study in East
Asia; however, as there will be no conference registration fee, they must
be members of IMS or have signed up for membership by the event’s starting

Conference theme: We invite proposals for presentations in any topic of
musical scholarship, but especially encourage and will give preference to
submissions which discuss the musicological discipline in East Asia.
Possible areas include the following, which however is not an exhaustive

- past, present, and future research directions and methodologies
- research materials (archives, digital resources, ethnographic resources,
- institutional practices and conventions
- representative topics of scholarship

Conference languages: Any language of presentation is welcome, however
presentations in English are strongly encouraged in order to facilitate
discussion and exchange of ideas. (Note that the choice of language will
not impact the likelihood of an abstract’s acceptance. If the presentation
is to be given in a language other than English, then we recommend that an
English translation be displayed on-screen or distributed via a Word or PDF
file.) Abstracts must be written in English for the purposes of the program
committee’s review.

Each speaker will be allotted thirty minutes, with twenty minutes for the
presentation and ten minutes for Q&A.
