Professor Nadine Hubbs' research focuses on gender and queer studies, 20th- and 21st-century U.S. culture, and social class in popular and classical music. Her writings have treated topics including Leonard Bernstein, tonal modernism, 1970s disco, Morrissey, Radiohead, and country music. Her award-winning first book, The Queer Composition of America’s Sound (University of California Press, 2004), asks how a circle of gay composers around Aaron Copland and Virgil Thomson managed to become architects of American identity during the nation's most homophobic period. Her latest book, Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music (University of California Press, 2014), combines musicological, social, and historical perspectives on American country music to historicize and challenge current constructions of the working-class homophobe. Professor Hubbs teaches Women’s Studies courses on gender, LGBTQ, and feminist studies, and on gender and sexuality in popular music.
