Feminist Theory and Music Conference | College of Arts

Feminist Theory and Music Conference

The University of Guelph | July 7-10, 2022

The study of music from the perspective of feminist theory raises significant questions that transcend the methodologies of any one subdiscipline of music. Feminist Theory and Music (FT&M) has met biennially since 1991 to provide an international, transdisciplinary forum for scholarly thought about music in relation to gender and sexuality, as well as for performances that present such thought in sound and embodied action.
