The twelfth meeting of the international, biennial conference Feminist
Theory and Music will take place at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York,
July 31-August 4. The conference program will include scholarly papers,
lecture-recitals, and evening concert performances.
The conference theme is New Voices in the New Millennium. We welcome new voices with planned panels addressing gender and the music of diverse communities. Planned panels include those focusing on the role of
women in contemporary gospel and feminism and expressions of funk.
We welcome proposals for scholarly papers from any disciplinary or

gender, or sexuality. The organizers especially encourage proposals
addressing questions related to African American, Latin American, and
Native American music. The committee also invites proposals related to
gender, feminism, and ethnographic research; music and the body of the
Other; music and prisons; poetry/spoken word, gender, and music; and
immigration, transnationalism and musical diasporas. Proposals focusing on
current social issues and any area of music and gender are also encouraged.
Proposals for panels of three or four papers are also welcome.
