Music and Gender

Fall 2018

Taught By: Amanda L. Scherbenske

Section: A

CRN: 5247

Credits: 4

In the 1990s, third-wave feminist scholarship critiqued the study of gender for its race- and class-based orientations. In spite of this mandate, much work intent on revision nonetheless has framed and considered gender within “the West.” This course examines social and cultural constructions of gender and sexuality in and through music in a variety of global contexts. We begin by exploring approaches to the study of music and gender from ethnomusicology, anthropology and performance studies. Then, organized in area studies modules, we consider such issues and themes as authority, power, inclusion/exclusion, dis/empowerment, distinction, and spirituality.
