The thirteenth meeting of the international, biennial conference Feminist Theory and Music will take place at the University of Wisconsin-Madison 5-9 August 2015. Jointly sponsored by the Center for Black Music Research, Columbia College, Chicago and the UW-Madison School of Music, the conference program will include presentations in a variety of formats.
The conference theme, Feminism and Black Critical Praxis in an Age of Scarcity, seeks to explore the sustainability of feminist and critical race work in a new century marked by diminishing resources. The Program Committee welcomes participants from within and without the academy and from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective that addresses music in relation to the African Diaspora, diverse communities, feminism, gender, or sexuality. Proposals focusing on current social issues and any area of music and gender are also encouraged.
Proposals for 90 minute panels of various structures are also welcome. Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words for scholarly papers of 20 minutes in length. Proposals for panels should include the overall theme of the panel and individual abstracts of each presentation (presentation abstracts should be 250 words maximum). Please specify any AV or other equipment needs, although we may not be able to provide all requested equipment.
We also invite proposals for musical performances and lecture-recitals (see website for submission directions).
Please send all proposals to feministtheoryandmusic at gmail.com on or before February 6, 2015. Direct questions about the conference program to Julia J. Chybowski, chybowsj at uwosh.edu. Any other conference questions can be directed to Susan C. Cook, sccook at wisc.edu.
