The 9th Symposium of the Music & Gender Study Group of the International Council for Traditional Music will be hosted by the Institute of Musicology and the Center for Global Studies at the University of Bern (Switzerland), July 13-16, 2016.

Papers are invited that address gender studies within the frame of current global processes—migration, transnationalism, diaspora, cross-cultural and/or cross-genre fusions and hybridity. Papers that engage the major analytical frameworks from feminist, masculinity, and queer studies by placing musical data into the interdisciplinary conversations on theory are especially encouraged. Participants are also invited to respond to questions related to the topics below, while signaling the paths that gender studies should take in this new period of scholarship and globalization more generally.

The full Call for paper is available here.
