Feminist Theory and Music 8
City University of New York, Graduate Center & New
York University
23-26 June 2005 New York City

The eighth meeting of the biennial conference Feminist
Theory and Music will take place from Thursday, 23
June to Sunday, 26 June 2005 in New York City at the
CUNY Graduate Center and New York University.

One focus of this year's conference will be the
relationship of gender, sexuality, and race to the
variety of musics in New York City. Additionally, we
welcome proposals that consider the implications of
feminist and queer music scholarship in a post-9/11
world characterized by a conservative moralistic
backlash. As always, the Feminist Theory and Music
conference invites contributions on all aspects of
musical inquiry, drawing on feminism, gender studies,
women's studies, queer studies, critical race theory,
postcolonial studies, and area studies/ethnic studies
from cross-disciplinary perspectives. Composers whose
work engages any of these areas are also invited to
submit proposals for presentations on their music.

For a 20-minute presentation, please submit an
abstract of no more than 250 words, along with your
contact information (name, address, phone number,
email address, and affiliation if any) and a list of
audiovisual requirements. Please send your proposal
via e-mail to ftm8.conference@nyu.edu. We also welcome
proposals for alternative formats such as panel/forum
discussions and lecture-performances. Such proposals
should provide a detailed description of the session
and the names and roles of the participants in an
abstract of no more than 500 words.

For information on the conference, please visit
www.nyu.edu/gsas/dept/music/ftm8. Performance tapes
or CDs for possible lecture-performances should be
mailed to Prof. Ellie Hisama, Ph.D. Program in Music,
City University of New York, 365 Fifth Avenue, New
York, NY 10016 USA; please include a stamped,
