"Women in Rock: Gettin' High, Lookin' Low." The world of women in rock
may be the busiest intersection of high and low culture. Do some female
rockers participate in both high and low culture all along? How do
women rockers appropriate and work elements of high and low culture
into something they can call their own? Do the same
race-and-class-based definitions of "high" and "low" operate in the
female rock universe, or have other ways emerged? And how do we
understand the high-and-low cultural borders and the ways—and
reasons--rock women cross them? These panels will examine the
relationship between the work women do in rock and pop music and the
worlds of "higher" and "lower" culture, musical and otherwise.
