4th – 6th September 2019, Bangor University, Wales
Call for Papers
Deadline for Proposals: Friday, 1 March 2019
The School of Music & Media at Bangor University invites proposals for the Second International Conference on Women’s Work in Music. The conference will celebrate the achievements of women musicians from across the ages to present day, and will aim to critically explore and discuss the changing contexts of women’s work in music on the international stage.
2019 marks the birth anniversaries of Barbara Strozzi (1619-77), Clara Schumann (1819-96), and the 40th anniversary of the death of Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979). What were the different intellectual, practical and cultural challenges these composers encountered during their lives? And are we familiar enough with their music today?
Although much progress has been made in terms of a better awareness of women musicians in recent years, what are the solutions that need to be adopted to ensure that women (both historic and contemporary) as composers, performers, educators and music professionals in general achieve greater recognition and parity? The conference will explore and analyse the diverse historical, cultural and political themes of women’s work in music, and will provide a platform for participants to present and discuss current developments and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted.
We invite researchers and practitioners to submit proposals which engage with a range of methodologies and perspectives on women’s work in music, whether these be from an academic, practice-based or educational viewpoint. While proposals on the subject of historical female composers are particularly encouraged, proposals can focus on women’s work in music in any musical genre, period or practice.
