WAING | Music and Sound in Myanmar Research Network
The WAING Research Network – aims at promoting transdisciplinary and transnational research in and on music and sound in Myanmar and intends to foster critical discussions among musicians and musicologists, ethnomusicologists, dancers, music historians, sound students, researchers of popular music, music collectors, or sound artists as well as anthropologists, religious scholars, sociologists, journalists, writers, political scientists, or art historians working in Myanmar (including its border regions and satellite communities around the world) with an interest in the sonic and musical.
This network is deliberately not concerned with music in the narrow sense but aims at an inclusive engagement with the audible and vibrational of social and cultural experience, and with it its discourses and practices, politics and atmospheres, institutions and agents, genres and occasions. Hence, we welcome a plurality of methodologies and critical theories as grounded in and emerging from the various sonic fields scholars engage with in Myanmar and beyond.
On our website, you will find information about on-going research and music projects, upcoming events, call for papers, new publications including not yet published theses (Master and PhD) as well as a growing international bibliography of relevant books and articles.
