First International Conference on Women’s Work in Music

The School of Music at Bangor University is pleased to announce the First International Conference on Women’s Work in Music. The Conference has been timed to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of the Welsh composer Grace Williams (1906-77).

The Conference aims to bring together academics, researchers and music professionals from around the world to share their research and experience of all aspects of women working in music. The Conference will seek to both celebrate the achievements of women musicians, and to critically explore and discuss the changing contexts of women’s work in music on the international stage. The diversity and richness of this work will be illustrated at the conference through presentations in areas such as historical musicology, music education, ethnomusicology, practice-led research and performance, composition, music analysis, popular music studies and much more.

The Conference Programme includes Keynote Presentations by leading scholar Dr. Sophie Fuller, author of The Pandora Guide to Women Composers: Britain and the United States, 1629-present, and the author and music journalist Jessica Duchen whose work has appeared in The Guardian, The Independent and The Sunday Times.

The Call for Papers for the First International Conference on Women’s Work in Music will be circulated in January 2017.
