  • About

    Nadine Hubbs is Professor of Women’s Studies, Music, and American Culture and Director of Undergraduate Studies. She directs the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Studies Graduate Certificate program and is a founding co-director of the U-M Lesbian-Gay-Queer Research Initiative (LGQRI). Her research and writing focus on popular and classical music, gender and queer studies, modern U.S. culture, and class studies. Hubbs’s book The Queer Composition of America’s Sound (California 2004) was recognized by the Philip Brett Award of the American Musicological Society, Irving Lowens Award of the Society for American Music, and John Boswell Prize of the American Historical Association's Committee on Lesbian and Gay History. Her current research uses gender and LGBTQ studies, social theory, cultural history, and musical analysis to examine intersections of the white working class and the queer through, beside, and against country music. In support of her book-in-progress Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music and in recognition of her previous work in LGBTQ studies she was awarded the 2009 Martin Duberman Fellowship by the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies. She teaches Women’s Studies courses on gender, LGBTQ, and feminist studies and gender and sexuality in popular music, of which the newest is Womenstd/AmCult 411, Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music.
