Department of Music, University of Pittsburgh

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

Performer in Residence: Anna Elder

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.
