Public Dissonance: Challenging Conventions of Gender and Sexuality Through Music

“Public Dissonance” examines the discursive function of music in the public sphere and the contribution of reading musical conventions as cultural forms that shape our knowledge of the history of sexual minorities. To reflect the range of exploration on music from the lens of gender and sexuality studies, and the role of public discourse in shaping historically invisible subcultures, this series brings together three scholars from different points in their career—a distinguished senior scholar, an established scholar and an emerging scholar on the tenure track.
This series is hosted by the Music Department with support from the Williamson Trust, Gender and Sexuality Studies, the Writing Program and the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies.
