The focus is on art, avant-garde, experimental, modernist, and popular music, by global (African, Middle Eastern, Central/ South/ Southeast/ East Asian, Latin American, Australasian etc.) music-makers, minority music-makers from the West, and music-makers from the peripheries of Europe and North America.

      Until recently, studies about Russian composers have dominated music scholarship on the countries of the former Soviet Union. Postcolonial theory can provide a useful framework to expanding research on music repertoire from the former Soviet Republics. The SMT Global Interculturalism and Musical Peripheries Interest Group is planning to propose a Special Session on Decolonizing New Music from the Post-Soviet space, to be held at the SMT/AMS Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado, on November 9-12, 2023.

      We invite proposals for 20-minute presentations that discuss music from the former Soviet Union, composed from the beginning of the 20th century to present. Preference will be given to proposals that engage with postcolonial studies, or in any way address decoloniality, neocolonialism, or anti-colonialism in music of this region.

      Please submit an initial 250-word proposal to the IG co-chair Ji Yeon Lee at before January 3, 2023, at 11:59 EST. The authors of accepted proposals will be asked to submit a 500-word abstract later in January, in order to meet the SMT proposal deadline of February 15.
