Exploring Gender Dynamics in the Music Industry
The Department of Arts, Culture and Media in connection with the research project Exploring Gender Dynamics in the Music Industry funded by the NWO KIEM (Creative Industry – Knowledge Innovation Mapping) at the University of Groningen is pleased to announce a two-day symposium to be held on May 17-18, 2019. The symposium will bring together both scholars and industry professionals to share insights on the topic of Gender Dynamics in the Music Industry. The intention is to share resources and create a dialogue to better address the lack of gender parity within the music industry. Further, we seek to extend to discussion to fields connected to, but not exclusive to the (relatively better researched) performance sphere.
During this two-day seminar, we welcome two keynote speakers, Dr. Marion Leonard (University of Liverpool, UK) and Dr. Ann Werner (Södertörn University, Sweden) with experience researching and publishing on this important topic as well as an early evening performance and reception at the local cafe Het Heerenhuis.
