Gender and Music Technologies

Fall 2022

Taught By: Clara Latham

Section: A

CRN: 14093

Credits: 4

This course examines a wide range of musical technologies -- from player pianos to vocoders, radios to autotune -- questioning how they embody ethical values that connect to aspects of cultural identity, specifically gender, race, and sexuality. We will read classic texts of feminist and queer discourse as well as current writing on the ways gender, race, and sexuality interact with sound and music. Course material spans classical and popular music studies as well as queer studies, black studies, Marxist feminism, and sound studies. In addition to regular reading and listening assignments for class discussions, students complete a research paper or creative project and work with the programming language Max/MSP.
