Research topic: Gender and music
How we listen to music is influenced by norms and behaviour patterns that are associated with gender and vice versa.
Music both communicates and influences our notions about gender. This becomes apparent in, among other things, the ways in which performers present themselves and perform their music.
Researchers into music and gender at the Department of Musicology have focused in particular on the audiovisual communication of music through channels such as music videos, the Internet, movies, computer games and television, with a focus on both Norwegian and international artists.
