Event details

‘Legacies of Resistance, Responding to Oppression: Changing Dynamics in LGBTQ+ Music Activism and Scholarship’

The Department of Music at the University of Southampton is very proud to host the third annual symposium of the UK & Ireland LGBTQ+ Music Study Group. This year’s symposium, which will be convened by Dr David Bretherton, will focus on the current and historic ramifications of LGBTQ+ oppressions on creative and intellectual musical life, by exploring the impact of attitudes and beliefs such as heterosexism, monosexism and cis-sexism, and how LGTBQ+ interests/concerns intersect with sexism, masculinism, racism, ableism, HIV/AIDSism, religionism, and so forth. It will seek to answer questions such as: How have such oppressions, and resistance to them, influenced music and its reception? How has musical and scholarly activism in these areas challenged social attitudes? How can musicians and researchers celebrate and draw on their queer – or other marginalised – subjectivities in their professional endeavours, in the pursuit of artistry, knowledge and social justice?

Further information, including registration details and a provisional programme, will be posted on the Study Group’s website (https://lgbtqmusicsg.wordpress.com/) in late January.

A ‘call for papers’ for the event can be found at https://lgbtqmusicsg.wordpress.com/2019-uni-southampton/ and closes in early January.
