MHST 322 - Musical Expressions of Gender and Sexuality

FC CNDP, DDHU
4 credits
From early-modern European salons to the transformista (drag) scene in modern Cuba, music has been inextricably intertwined with expressions of gender and sexuality. This seminar-style course explores a diverse tradition of female, queer, and non-binary contributions to musical life while also considering ways that music has posed a threat to normative masculine and heterosexual identities. Our readings span historical and geographical boundaries and draw from musicology, ethnomusicology, and gender studies. By examining music as a medium for the negotiation of gender and sexuality, we will gain a deeper appreciation of the relationship between music, social power, and resistance.
Prerequisites & Notes: One 200-level course in the Musicology Department.
