Soundscapes and Folklore in East Asia

The seminar series ‘Folklore and Anthropology in Conversation’ encourages empirical and conceptual dialogue between the two related disciplines of folklore and anthropology

The symposium is a one-day event held at the offices of the Royal Anthropological Institute and The Folklore Society at 50 Fitzroy Street, London on Thursday 24 October 2024.  Presentations will be given in-person, but conference attendees may attend either on-site, or via ZOOM.

In this year’s conference, we will explore a range of topics in the areas of folk music studies, ethnomusicology, oral folklore, ritual, and performance. New approaches in social, cultural and political interpretations are invited.

Geographically, the conference will be focused on East Asia broadly defined, including China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam, but not excluding adjacent areas.

Anyone interested in making a presentation should contact Prof James H. Grayson at j.h.grayson@sheffield.ac.uk

Anyone wishing to submit a proposal should write a 200-word abstract including paper title, author’s name and contact details.  The proposal should be submitted to j.h.grayson@sheffield.ac.uk. The submission date for paper proposals is 30 June 2024.

Paper proposers will be notified by 31 July 2024.
