In this course we will explore a variety of issues concerning gender and sexuality in traditional and popular music-cultures from around the world. We will examine local and cross-cultural case studies in order to understand the different methods through which music acquires gendered and sexualized meaning and efficacy in society. Themes may include: how music maintains gender inequalities and enforces subjugating behavior; how music is used to protest and resist gender and sexuality beliefs and norms; how performers are restricted by sexism and stereotyping in the music industry; how transgender performers defy or enforce gender expectations; how listeners identify with music and build fan communities; and how music empowers gender and sexual identities and expressions.
The course is currently planned to take place on campus. If you, for health-related reasons, prefer to participate in this course via Zoom, please get in touch with the lecturer Prof. Juniper Hill.
