Come join the American Cultures Seminar for a Work in Progress talk with Matthew Jones. A pre circulated paper must be read prior to attendance and can be obtained by email Michele Navakas at mnavakas@miamioh.edu.

Matthew Jones' work focuses on contemporary popular music and issues of gender and sexuality, especially queerness and music. He is currently at work on a book project about music, social justice, and HIV/AIDS activism that chronicles the life and works of Ohio-born activist and songwriter, Michael Callen (1955-1993). His work has appeared (or will appear this year) in The Journal of Popular Music Studies, The Journal of the Society for American Music, and Women & Music. Dr. Jones' next project looks at what he calls "disability virtuosity" in the guitar style of Joni Mitchell.
