New Perspectives on Gender in Music


Acquiring Editor: Laurie Matheson
Series Editors: Suzanne Cusick, New York University, and Henry Spiller, University of California Davis

This series aims to present innovative studies of the intersections of music with gender and sexuality. Series books will explore the gendered cultural dynamics, embodiment and expression, repertoires, reception, social politics, performing practices, and so on of music, encompassing both western and nonwestern contexts and both ethnomusicological and historical approaches. Series books may include a significant theoretical or reflexive component, and they may reach into related fields such as dance and religion, to the extent that the approach clarifies ways in which gender informs the making and experiencing of music. Overall the series seeks to illuminate the ways in which gender is integral to the production and consumption of music in all of its forms.
