The Hitchcock Institute’s 2011 Spring Speaker Series: Music in Polycultural America 

DESCRIPTION: The H. Wiley Hitchcock Institute for Studies in American Music and in collaboration with the Conservatory of Music, the Department of Africana Studies, and the American Studies Program at Brooklyn College present: Music in Polycultural America "Riot Grrrl Is Dead. Long Live Riot Grrrl: Political Activism, Nostalgia, and Historiography" Drawing on José Esteban Muñoz’s reflections on constructing utopias through nostalgic framings of the past, this presentation questions the political nature of remembering Riot Grrrl today and addresses the juncture where the now-popular production of 1990s nostalgia intersects with the important project of feminist historiography of the Third Wave. Elizabeth K. Keenan completed her doctorate in ethnomusicology at Columbia University in 2008 and is on the music faculty at Fordham University. She recently won the Wong Tolbert Prize from the Society for Ethnomusicology.
