Writing history from the perspectives of gender and the body

The workshop examines feminist and queer approaches to the historiography, especially that of the arts and music. The aim of the workshop is to help individual students form their research questions and arguments, using methods and theoretical models drawn from recent "intersectional" scholarship on the interaction of gendered and raced alterities, as well as from history, historical studies of the arts, musicology, ethnomusicology, anthropology and sound studies. Special emphasis will be on the interpretation of historical data as articulations of or evidence about gendered and raced distributions of power in the past.
