Music for Girls
The Music for Girls conference will bring together music researchers and fans to reconsider popular music knowledge and gender. Popular music experiences of women and girls reveal an ‘expertise’ that goes beyond stereotypes of male critics and collectors.
Professors Angela McRobbie and Kyra D. Gaunt, whose work on music and girls continues to influence the field, will provide the keynotes. There will also be special musical performance by Nina Kohout, winner of the 2022 Gazelle Twin Scholarship for Women in Music Technology.
Curated by Dr Mimi Haddon (University of Sussex) and Professor Bethany Klein (University of Leeds) as part of their ongoing work on the AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council) funded network ‘Music for Girls: Women’s Knowledge Culture of Popular Music’
