Call for Papers

Performing Authenticity: Women, Country Music, and Media

39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, New York

This panel seeks to interrogate the ways in which the concept of
authenticity is negotiated by female country musicians through
song and performance. Further, it is interested in examining how
mediated forms featuring or depicting female country musicians
(such as the music video, the biopic, and the documentary)
reflect an acceptance or rejection of (or a struggle with)
traditional notions of country authenticity. Papers will examine
this topic via analyses of specific musicians, performances,
and/or mediated representations. Please send 250-500 word
abstracts via e-mail to Molly Brost at
Deadline for proposals is September 15, 2007.
