But what sort of sense is constitutive of the everydayness? Surely this sense includes not sense so much as sensuousness, . . . a knowledge that lies as much in the objects and spaces of observation as in the body and mind of the observer.

A change in location, focus, allegiance or perspective can lead to a major shift in an artist's work, which can then lead to a different sound, a different public persona, a different audience. Women artists who start out as one thing end up something else—gospel singers go secular and vice versa, country goes disco, folk rock goes jazz. We invite papers that explore this sort of transition and explore its aesthetic (and other) consequences in the career of a woman artist or group.
