Music in the US during World War II (Lecture)
April 5, 2013 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Annegret Fauser is Professor of Music and Adjunct Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her research engages with music in France and the U.S. in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Traditionally gendered feminine in Western culture, music plays a particularly complex role in times of war, ranging from the practical to the ideological. Not only was music weaponized for use in war theaters and propaganda, but it also served as an agent in the construction of the so-called home-front. Drawing on both popular and classical music, Fauser examines the intertwined destinies of music and gender in the United States during World War II.
