Women Working in Music Education: The War Machine
Gould, Elizabeth
Philosophy of Music Education Review, v17 n2 p126-143 Fall 2009
When women take up the work of music education, of the university, and become nomadic, engaging Deleuze and Guattari's war machine, all kinds of things happen. As nomads in music education, women traverse borders and boundaries that would otherwise limit and constrain them as they initiate alternative possibilities related to teaching and learning music. For women working at the university level, this is yearning, the necessity to engage in crucial, meaningful, intellectual work, to think and write work that stimulates and inspires, as we are passionately and artistically engaged in everyday life. The nomadic war machine of women working in music education, embodied as yearning, looks for what more is there, what more in music education can be created and actualized. Conceiving music education as difference, in terms of its creative potential, women engage potentialities of experimentation, risk, and chance.
