Who roared before Katy Perry roared? This course surveys the many musical achievements of women composers and performers, including classical, pop, hip-hop/rap, country, and other genres. We will explore the historical contexts that shaped and defined their artistic development. Though not a feminism course, some feminist theories will be sampled in our readings. Course includes readings, papers, and a final presentation.
