Call for Papers: East Asian Music Research Institute Biennial International Symposium

The East Asian Music Research Insti­tute will hold its bien­ni­al inter­na­tion­al sym­po­sium on Sep­tem­ber 2, 2011. The meet­ing will take place on the cam­pus of Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty. This year’s theme is “Traditions and Tran­si­tions: Tra­di­tion­al Music Edu­ca­tion in Asia.”

Pro­pos­als are encour­aged on top­ics relat­ed to tra­di­tion­al music edu­ca­tion across Asia. The goal of this inter­na­tion­al sym­po­sium is not only to pro­vide schol­ars across the region a forum in which to present their research, but also an oppor­tu­ni­ty to engage in active dis­cus­sion and debate. Both indi­vid­ual paper pro­pos­als and pro­pos­als for round­table dis­cus­sions and prac­ti­cal work­shops link­ing research to prac­tice are wel­come.

The sym­po­sium will be con­duct­ed in both Eng­lish and Kore­an. Hotel accom­mo­da­tions and a small per diem will be pro­vid­ed for par­tic­i­pants trav­el­ing from out­side of Seoul. Paper pre­sen­ta­tions should be 20 min­utes in length to be fol­lowed by up to 10 min­utes chaired dis­cus­sion time.

All abstracts should appear as a sin­gle para­graph, be no more than 300 words in length, and include the presenter’s name and insti­tu­tion­al affil­i­a­tion. Abstracts must be sub­mit­ted via e-mail to by March 30, 2011.
