Gendering Africa: Musical Perspectives
“Gendering Africa: Musical Perspectives” is a day-long symposium featuring presentations from African and African-descended women ethnomusicologists and performers who center sub-Saharan Africa in the on-going conversation concerning gender and music. It is designed to locate, highlight and put in dialogue the perspectives and lived experiences of women of African descent in the discourse on gender and music in Africa. This focus resists both sub-Saharan Africa’s peripheral status within the discourse on gender and music and the neglect of gender perspectives within Africanist ethnomusicology on topics ranging from performance practices to musical instruments to music and identity. Topics covered also represent a broad geographical scope that clarifies the depth and breadth of the African landscape in the conversation on music and gender.
