MUS 244 - Music & Gender

Course unit(s): 1
Meets GAR: Meets general academic requirement DE and IL.
In the last thirty years, work in musicology and ethnomusicology has dramatically altered the ways that we understand gender and its role in shaping the way music is created, performed, produced, consumed, and understood. This class builds upon the foundations of that scholarship. In it, we will think both historically and comparatively about the ways that ideas about the meanings of gender and its role in shaping ideas about and roles within particular musical practices. Reading may include selections from feminist theory, queer theory, musicology, and ethnomusicology, and listening examples may include examples of concert music by women composers (from Hildegard to Tania Leon), Western and Chinese operas, popular and traditional music from around the globe, blues and jazz.
