What part does fear play--for good or for ill--in the work and careers
of female musicians? Which artists build their work around creating a
feeling of unease, shock or even peril in their audiences, how do they
do it, and how does it contribute to their success? Artists who turn
their backs on the nurturing, comforting female persona and go for the
discomforting--from Goths to Diamanda Galas--are the subject of this
year's panel.  250-word abstracts to patriciarudden@gmail.com by April
15.
