The IMS Study Group "Global History of Music" calls for submissions to its
study session at the IMS2022 Congress in Athens, Greece (August 22-26,
2022), on the theme of "Ethics, Inequality and Collaboration in Global
Music History."

How might the new field of global music history position itself in relation
to current thinking about decoloniality and diversity? Can the practice of
global music history avoid replicating the epistemic and political
injustices of earlier colonialist and orientalist projects of knowledge
extraction? Is ethical collaboration between researchers in the Global
South and North possible in the face of large-scale structural
inequalities? The IMS Study Group “Global History of Music” seeks proposals
for presentations that address these or similar questions, to be discussed
within the framework of the study group session at IMS2022.

Study group members are invited to propose short individual presentations
of 10 minutes, or 60-minute roundtables with up to four speakers. (The
proposer must be a current study group member; other participants do not
need to be members but are nevertheless warmly invited to join.)
Presentations do not need to be formal scholarly papers, but may be
personal reflections, examples of good practice, or critical perspectives
on current disciplinary debates. Proposals from or involving speakers who
have not previously participated in IMS events are particularly welcome,
and there will be the option for online or hybrid presentations.

Proposals for individual presentations should be no more than 150 words,
and those for roundtables no more than 300 words. (Please note that this
call for papers is independent from the general call for papers for IMS2022
and a submission to this session does not affect eligibility for other
proposals at the congress.) Please send your texts accompanied by a short
biography of no more than 100 words for each speaker to globalhistory -at- by August 15, 2021.
