The Enterprise of Musicology: Trends in our New Age
Hong Kong, 4-6 December 2015
CFP Deadline: 10 April 2015

Musical and musicological trends are ever changing with evolving sociological,
economic, and political climates; at the same time, trends can also be
geographic-specific. The East Asian Regional Association of the International
Musicological Society (IMS-EA)’s 2015 meeting in Hong Kong sets out to examine
current trends of musicological thoughts, and in particular, ‘Asian trends’ –
if such a phenomenon could be discerned. Asian countries are some of the
fastest growing in the world: in technology, in science, in cultural
development, and in educational innovation. Are such elements influential
factors in musicological trends in Asia and world-wide?

The deadline for submitting (20-min) paper or (90- or 120-min) panel proposals
for IMS-EA 2015 is Friday, April 10, 21:00 (UTC+8). To avoid online problems,
please submit at least 24 hours before the deadline. Authors will be notified
on Friday, May 15, 2015. Panels are especially encouraged, in particular those
with researchers from different regions/disciplines. The organizer of a panel
should act as the corresponding author and submit the proposal as a package
that includes the abstracts of each paper as well as a rationale of the whole.
Length: max. 250 words for each abstract or rationale. Abstracts should be in
English. Submissions by post or by e-mail are not accepted. For the correct
links to submit abstracts, and for further information, please consult: http://www.imsea2015.org/
