FA 232 Women, Music, and Culture


3 credits

Human identity is not a fixed or static property, but a fluid process that is continually under revision. As such, this course explores the ways in which music has participated in shaping unstable concepts of gender over time. The scope of the course spans the Ancient world to the contemporary moment. By examining the different roles and occupations of women over time, students are given an interdisciplinary context for comparing the many ways in which music has contributed to the performance of identity across Western cultures. As such, the course critiques the manner in when gender roles have served as mechanisms of power and sources of ongoing debate.
