Perspectives on Music Production: Gender in Music Production

Posted: February 17th, 2018 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | No Comments »

Call for Contributions

The music production industry has, for many years, been viewed as male dominated. Despite many examples of diversification and acknowledgement of the issues (such as the Audio Engineering Society’s ‘He For She’ campaign), gender representation within music production is considered limited. The editors welcome abstracts for chapters in a forthcoming Routledge edited volume entitled Gender in Music Production. The scope for contributions are listed below.

  • Gender within the production workplace: gender bias and/or gender stereotyping in the production workplace?
  • Gendered modalities of production
  • Gender and intersectionality (with race/class/sexual identity/ability) within the production workplace and music production
  • Record production and the performance of gender
  • Case Studies & Interviews. Discussions of, or with, individual figures who have views on the above and are willing to give interviews (release forms will need to be signed)
  • Reflections exploring to what extent experiences (anecdotes) represent/speak to both genders and to non-binary individuals.

Please submit an abstract of 500-750 words to [email protected] by 9th April 2018.¬†Should you have any questions, please email the address above.

Dates and Deadlines

Submission of abstracts for consideration: 9th April 2018
Authors notified if abstract accepted or rejected: 4th May 2018
Chapters to be submitted in full (included release forms): 12th May 2019
