40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts
For decades, female country musicians have struggled with a dichotomy between "home" and "the road." Though women in country music have traditionally been positioned in relation to the home, touring often takes them out of the domestic sphere. As a result, some female musicians struggle to maintain their domestic images, while others cast such expectations aside, singing about the need to leave the home. This panel seeks to examine how female country musicians address this omnipresent conflict between home and the road via analyses of specific country musicians, performances, and/or songs. Please send 250-300 word proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org with "NeMLA country music panel" in the subject line by September 15, 2008.
