Venue: Paul Webley Wing (Senate House) Room: Alumni Lecture Theatre

Type of Event: Symposium

“Place” holds an ongoing significance in East Asian music: from the maintenance of musical traditions and the recent highlighting of East Asian music in national and international systems of intangible cultural heritage, to the global interest in K-Pop and its equivalents in China and Japan.

Over two days, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese scholars and musicians – from East Asia, and from Europe and Australia – will come together to explore through talks and performances innovative ways of understanding how place and music are conceptualised, interconnected, expressed, refused and reinterpreted in music from or related to East Asia.
