WGS 3559

Course Name: 
Women and Music
Units: 
3

This course examines women’s engagements with the sounds, social practices, production, and representation of music. Our case studies draw on popular, vernacular ("folk"), and classical music from the U.S. and around the world, focusing on the 1920s to the present. We will address how music-making can both express and inform gender, and how ideas about gender and sexuality shape musical environments. Previous musical knowledge is not required.
