Reading Group Session 2: Music/Musicology and the Category of Gender/Sex
Why is it important/productive to implement the sex/gender perspective into the practice of knowledge production, especially in the context of music/musicology? What are the standard questions we can ask in relation to gender/sex and music? How strongly are the categories of ‘masculinity’, ‘maleness’, ‘womanhood’ and ‘femininity’ embodied in and reproduced by music? How does/might the category of gender affect our practice of conducting musicological investigations?
