MUS 240 Women in Music

This course will examine outstanding musical achievements of women throughout history and in contemporary society. Women's global contribution to music will be explored through diverse styles of composition and performance, active participation in education, and patronage. Topics include music and power, gender, class, challenging the "roles," and performing identities. In an active classroom environment, students will have ample opportunity to challenge, lead, and discover their own contribution to the arts through valid argument. [H, W]
