Syllabus for a Women Studies Course on Women Composers.
Hayes, Deborah
An upper division college-level course dealing with women composers for both music majors and nonmusic majors is outlined. The course provides an historical and analytical survey of western music through works composed by women, with emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. Students listen to music, participate in class discussions, and listen to lectures. The syllabus lists the required texts, discusses grading, and contains a weekly schedule. The major part of the syllabus consists of a bibliography of the listening and reading assignments. The assignments are organized under the following categories: introduction; Middle Ages; Renaissance; baroque period; classic period; romantic period; 20th century to 1950; women in U.S. folk, blues, gospel, and ragtime music; and 20th century since 1950.
