“The goal of the conference is bringing together speakers from various related disciplines to have a conversation on a topic — erotics — that is always present in our research but rarely addressed head-on,” Steven Moon, one of the conference’s organizers and a graduate student in ethnomusicology, said via email. The presentations and the performance are all open to the public. “When we began planning this a year ago, I worked with my colleague Woody Steinken (graduate student in musicology) to decide on a theme that was relevant to what is happening in our fields of historical musicology and ethnomusicology, as well as other disciplines where scholars deal with music,” Moon said. A panel of five graduate students narrowed it down to 16 presenters.
The event, which was organized by graduate students, begins at 1 p.m. 22 with a variety of presentations throughout Friday and Saturday, and concludes with a performance by soprano Anna Elder at 5 p.m. “Gender studies is continuing to become central to a lot of musical scholarship, so we chose ‘Music and Erotics’ because it is broadly applicable to work, regardless of geographic area and time period, and it allows for a lot of interesting interpretations (gender/sexuality, identity, violence, etc.) while remaining topical.” The keynote address at 6 p.m. 22 will be given by Deborah Wong, an ethnomusicologist at the University of California, Riverside, who specializes in the music of Thailand and Asian America. Topics include: Elder will perform songs selected from more than 20 submissions.
