The ‘genderman’: (re)negotiating militarized masculinities when ‘doing gender’ at NATO
Jessica Frazier (University of Kent)
The Other Woman: Unorthodox Forms of ‘Femininity’ in the Hindu World
I never thought about conducting as a gendered profession at all before moving to the UK. It was only after moving here that I saw myself as part of the more rarified category of ‘woman conductor’. This change arose gradually out of the realisation that everyone else was a man and that I was not like them.
A reminder that our next seminar will feature presentations by Serena Alessi (on the relationship between canon and myth) and Rachel Delman (on the representation and perception of female authority).
It will take place in Christ Church, Lecture Room 1 (Tom Quad), at 5.15 on Wednesday 22 February. We look forward to seeing you there.
Call for papers for Women on the Verge, University of Manchester:
“The conference aims to serve as an interdisciplinary forum for discussion, analysis and reflection on the concept of femininity and gender representations, which are socially, geographically and culturally embedded. Furthermore, it focuses on the re-appreciation of women as creative and professional figures within the literary environment and the cultural marketplace (artists, authors, publishers, editors, translators and so forth).”
