The Center for Black Music Research and the School of Music at the University of Wisconsin–Madison announce that online early registration is open for the thirteenth Feminist Theory and Music conference. The conference theme Feminism and Black Critical Praxis in an Age of Scarcity is in conversation with the 2013 theme, New Voices in the New Millennium, and explores the sustainability of feminist and critical race work in a new century marked by diminishing resources. Full program information is available at http://www.femtheorymusic.org/.
Early registration fees are $125 for regular registration and $75 for student/retired registration. Do not register online after August 2.
