Performing Authenticity: Women, Country Music, and Media
39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, New York
This panel seeks to interrogate the ways in which the concept of authenticity is negotiated by female country musicians through song and performance. Further, it is interested in examining how mediated forms featuring or depicting female country musicians (such as the music video, the biopic, and the documentary) reflect an acceptance or rejection of (or a struggle with) traditional notions of country authenticity. Papers will examine this topic via analyses of specific musicians, performances, and/or mediated representations.
