Music, Justice, and Gender

Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, September 14-16, 2007

Syracuse University is pleased to announce Music, Justice, and Gender, a
symposium to be held September 14-16, 2007. This event, generously
supported by a grant from the Mellon Foundation, will bring together
scholars, performers, and activists from the worlds of performance,
composition, historical musicology, ethnomusicology, and women's studies
to join the faculty and students from the universities involved in the
newly instituted Upstate New York Humanities Corridor-the Eastman School
of Music (University of Rochester), Syracuse University, and Cornell

We invite scholars interested in issues related to music, justice, and
gender to submit abstracts. Possible topics might include, but are not
limited to:

- Music, gender, and censorship
- The role of women/LGBT composers and scholars in the academy
- Gender, justice, and musical nationalism
- Music, gender, and violence
- Music, gender, and AIDS/HIV
- Music, gender, and the negotiation of power

Abstracts (250 words) should outline the proposed paper as fully as
possible and should include requests for any needed audiovisual equipment.
Papers will be limited to 20 minutes.

Abstracts should be sent via e-mail or post to:
