In this presentation, I take as a starting point the archive-based process of writing The Great Woman Singer: Gender and Voice in Puerto Rican Music. I address the specific concerns that arise when studying voice via archival work; analyzing women singers as musicians and thinkers; and writing about purportedly marginal locations. I propose a further researchagenda along the lines of its central concept of "the thinking voice."
