Poets, Mothers, and Performers

Considering Women's Impact on the Music of Johann Sebastian Bach

Yale Institute of Sacred Music, October 16-18, 2009

Music historiography has typically focused on male composers and their work,
resulting in a historical narrative with little female presence.  This
international conference will recognize the significant impact women had in
Johann Sebastian Bachs musical community, as performers, recipients,
producers, and subjects.
Featuring renowned scholars in the areas of music history, source studies,
gender studies, and theology, the conference will rethink women's roles
in Bach
scholarship. The key note address will be given by Prof. Wendy Heller
(Princeton). Invited speakers include Mark Peters, Yo Tomita, and Tanya
Kevorkian.

The conference is chaired by Prof. Markus Rathey (Yale) and sponsored by the
Yale Institute of Sacred Music in collaboration with the Music
Department and
the Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program at Yale.
