The Regional Association for East Asia of the International Musicological Society (IMSEA) is pleased to announce its sixth biennial conference to be held in Jeonju, Korea, from October 21 to October 23 in 2022.*

Since its foundation in 2011, IMSEA has held biennial conferences in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Suzhou. The 2022 conference in Jeonju, 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.

Welcome Note from the IMS President

* As of this announcement, the conference will take place in person in the fall of 2022. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and make necessary contingency plans in case an in-person gathering is not possible then.
