Welcome!

We are delighted to announce the foundation of the RMA LGBTQ Study Group, which will offer something of a UK equivalent to the AMS LGBTQ Study Group.

The aims of the study group are:

  • To increase awareness in the UK Academy of the relationship between sexuality and music
  • To promote contact and dialogue amongst music students & scholars working in LGBTQ studies
  • To establish a forum for the presentation and dissemination of LGBTQ musicological research
  • To publicise events which investigate music and sexuality in the UK and abroad
  • To examine the process of coming out in, and being LGBTQ in, music academia in the UK
  • To support and advise on LGBTQ music curricula in UK HE institutions.

For information about the Study Group and our activities, contact Dr. Danielle Sofer <danielle.sofer@mu.ie>

One thought on “Welcome!

  1. It’s extraordinary, isn’t it, that this is only now coming into existence? Great to see this now and I look forward to following everyone’s work and joining in where appropriate. In the light of recent entrenchments of herteronormative attitudes and homophobic attacks across Europe, this is very timely.
