"Women in Rock, Pop, Jazz and Rap. What You Know To Be Real: Women's
Music, Women's Reality."

Music made by women that originates in their experience of reality is
common now but was once almost revolutionary. The very idea that women
could publish their own expression, musical or otherwise, in the wider
aesthetic marketplace seemed strange not too long ago. What happens
when women's reality breaks through the conventions of popular music,
and what regard do these artists have for the conventions of "realism"
as they sing their own reality? Successful proposals will address some
aspect of the encounter between women's music and women's reality in
light of the tension between romantic self-expression and social

200-250 word proposals by March 15
