« We invite submissions for an online symposium on March 25-26, 2022 on the topic of translations of music-theoretical source materials from around the world. Our intention is to prioritize languages that have been historically underrepresented in Western music theory, thereby illuminating how music theory is a fundamentally pluralistic discipline—both in terms of its objects of study and its modes of transmission. We therefore encourage a broad approach to what counts as a theoretical source, and welcome submissions that engage historical treatises, contemporary scholarly writing, ethnographic interviews, oral transmissions, and more. We especially encourage submissions which open up discussion of epistemologies and/or value systems that differ from those typically attached to Western musical ideas, and which thereby offer lenses through which we can more sensitively engage with diverse musical practices. »
