Gender, Musical Creativity and Age

Deadline: March 31, 2012

CALL FOR PAPERS: ‘Gender, Musical Creativity and Age’
6-7 October 2012, University of Huddersfield, UK.

Hosted by the Centre for the Study of Music, Gender and Identity (MuGI).
Director: Dr Lisa Colton. http://www.hud.ac.uk/mugi/

This interdisciplinary conference will take a broad approach to matters of
representation and identity, examining the intersection of age and gender in
relation to musical creativity across a wide range of historical periods and
genres. Our keynote address will be given by Dr Sophie Fuller (Trinity Laban
Conservatoire of Music and Dance; MuGI Visiting Research Fellow). We welcome
proposals from all disciplinary backgrounds and methodologies, especially
critical, analytical, ethnographic and empirical approaches, and musicians
reflecting on their own creative practice in relation to issues of gender and
age.

Possible areas for discussion include music, gender and age in relation to
• Creative ‘peaks’ and artistic development in composers and performers
• The concept of ‘early works’ or juvenilia
• Notions of generic or individual ‘late style’
• Representations of music and musicianship across various media
• Processes of ageing in music and musicians, including the ageing of stars and
their fans
• The changing reception of performers and composers during their lifetimes and
posthumously
• Subcultural participation, formation and identities
• Intersections of gender and age with other representations or categories of
difference
• Participation in creative activity across boundaries of gender and age
• Creativity in educational settings and activities
• The dissemination of financial and cultural resources across various
demographics

Papers will be 20 minutes long with additional time for questions. Proposals for
lecture recitals, pre-formed panels or other non-traditional presentation
formats are also welcome: please provide full details with your submission.

Abstracts of 200 words should be sent to Dr Catherine Haworth (c.m.haworth at
hud.ac.uk) by 31 March 2012.
