Instructional Assistant Professor of musicology, Illinois State University
We are a group dedicated to the study of musics and soundscapes of East Asia, East Asian diasporas, and other milieus culturally proximate to (even if geographically distant from) East Asia–as well as the imagination of these cultural spheres–from a broadly global, comparative perspective, critiquing and crossing the non-/Western musical divide. We adopt a global, network, or assemblage perspective on research that emphasizes the intersection of local, minoritarian, national, regional, post/colonial, decolonial, and deimperial forces, whether the geographical sites involved are located in Asia or elsewhere. Often moving across cultural milieus, our work translates into the examination of various forms of hybridity involving Western, traditional, folk, popular, pop rock, avant-garde, electronic, and other musics. Our work is proximate to methodologies and topics broadly recognized as musicological–global music historiography, history and current practice of music theory and analysis, avant-gardism, hybridity, and Western art music performance in East Asia etc., but we are also open to ethnomusicological methodologies and topics broadly aligned with our vision. While most of us are members of the American Musicological Society, we welcome scholars from other music societies, as well as scholars in other fields who may be interested in our work.
