The Special Interest Group for Historical Ethnomusicology
was established within SEM in 2005 in order to bring together SEM members with
an interest in historical studies. Membership in the group is open to all
scholars interested in the study of music history and the application of
historical methodologies within the field of ethnomusicology.
The mission of the Special Interest Group for Historical Ethnomusicology is to
support historical studies in the field of ethnomusicology, primarily through
the sponsorship and promotion of discussion, events and publications related to
historical approaches in the study of music. This group provides:
forum for music scholars with historical interests to discuss issues
related to the study of music history;
organizational basis to plan and execute events that focus on historical
topics and methodologies;
information network where scholars can share and promote publications and
activities related to the study of music history
