#GenderMachtPop - Power Structures in Popular Music
What does power do in pop music? And what does gender have to do with it? In this lecture, Melanie Ptatscheck and Monika Schoop explore these questions using selected examples. In doing so, they focus on diverse power relations and their effects. Among other things, the lack of visibility - or even absence - of female read and non-binary persons, the (re)production of exclusions in musical socialization and music education, media representations as well as sexualized violence will be addressed. The lecture invites to critically question and break up existing power structures and lays a foundation for the discussion of intervention strategies.

The talk takes place online via Zoom.

Registration for the Popakademie Talks is possible here. Participation is free of charge.
