The conference will be conducted in English, with Chinese as appropriate. 

Call for Papers

The conference welcomes proposals for papers of 30 minutes in duration.  Selected participants will be eligible for either full or partial subsidy to attend the conference, as well as a modest amount of research funding to off-set the cost of archival reproductions.  While the conference prioritizes post-doctoral level research, advanced Ph.D. candidates working on related dissertation topics are especially encouraged to apply.  Abstracts of no more than 300 words and contact information (including affiliation, if any) may be sent directly to the convener on/before January 15, 2018. 


The conference is made possible through the generous support of the CUHK Research Summit Series, the MA Programme in Music, the Department of Music at CUHK, and the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Endowment Fund at Villa I Tatti, The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies.

Further Information

Updates will be posted on this page and provided to participants as the conference approaches. The timing of this conference is coordinated with the bi-annual NTU-CUHK-EARS graduate music student forum, an exchange among exceptional students and faculty supervisors from Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, set to take place at CUHK on May 18-19, 2018 (details TBA).
