Conference Dates: February 22-23, 2019

Location: University of Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania)

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Deborah Wong (University of California, Riverside) 

The erotic exists at the core of our being, at the peripheries of our consciousness, and is embedded in our senses. It is experienced in the body but is often unspeakable, or exists beyond recognition and conceptualization. As gender, sexuality, and their materiality remain central to music studies today, theorizing the erotic allows us to think through the embodied experience of listening to and producing music and sound. For this conference, we seek papers that ask how the ethno/musicologies, music theory, composition, and other related disciplines might understand music across geographical and temporal distance in relation to the erotic. 

Full CFP and submission instructions available at the conference website.
