The Robert M. Stevenson Lecture in 2022 will be now be hosted on Zoom. Follow this Zoom link to join Nadine Hubbs's Presentation.

Country music has been strongly associated with Anglo-white Americans, but changing racial-ethnic understandings are rapidly redefining the genre. Hubb's fieldwork with Mexican American country music lovers in California and Texas illuminates the historical and cultural perspectives by which these fans understand not that country music offers belonging, but that it belongs to, Mexican Americans, and why their love for it is inevitable.

Nadine Hubbs is a publicly engaged scholar with interests in sexuality and gender, class, race, and ethnicity in mostly U.S. popular and concert music. Her work on country music includes Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music, Uncharted Country: New Voices and Perspectives in Country Music Studies, and her current book project, Country Mexicans: Sounding Mexican American Life, Love, and Belonging in Country Music. She is professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Music at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
