The mission of the ICTM Study Group on Music and Allied Arts of Greater South Asia is to foster the study of sound, music and allied arts in South Asia broadly conceived. We encourage collaborative and comparative work with colleagues across the region and areas connected through geographical contiguity, diaspora, trade, and the internet. We wish to promote the acts of doing and making—whether that involves performing, dancing, composing, drawing, or any other relevant form of participation—as integral parts of scholarly study. We strive toward inclusiveness with regard to scholarly approaches and participation.
This study group will meet approximately every two years, generally in conjunction with another regionally defined group and in a variety of international locations. All ICTM members in good standing are welcome to join and non-ICTM members will generally be invited to attend its meetings.
