Subj: SEAMUS-L: Women and Music Technology Workshop

=============================
Women and Music Technology
Weekend Workshop
March 16-19, 2000
Agnes Scott College
Atlanta-Decatur, Georgia

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The College Music Society Committee on Music, Women, and Gender
welcomes proposals for hands-on paper/performance demonstrations,
panels, discussions, performances, demonstrations, and other
types of presentations that relate to women and music technology.
As panel sessions on Women and Gender in Music Technology at the
national College Music Society meetings in Puerto Rico (1998)
and Denver (1999) demonstrated, there is considerable interest
in the contributions of women in music technology and their roles
within historical, cultural, societal, and gender-based frameworks
of expectations and perspectives. The workshop is set in
Atlanta-Decatur, Georgia and offers opportunities for innovative
and challenging hands-on instruction sessions, performances,
improvisations, and plenum discussions. This workshop will:

1) provide an overview of current issues involved in teaching,
research, performance, and composition in women and music technology,

2) provide an opportunity for a hands-on exchange of both information
and technological expertise,

3) facilitate a feminist option for empowerment through technology
that will complement and augment related, largely male-attended
CMS/ATMI technology sessions and workshops, and

4) provide opportunities for performance and improvisation.

It will address a wide range of topics, provide participants with
an opportunity to explore creative technological possibilities as
teachers, audio engineers, composers, performers, performance artists,
sound system designers, mentors, researchers, and students of
gender and culture, and contribute teaching materials such as course
outlines and syllabi, and resources such as bibliographies,
audio-visual aids, and cyberspace connections. The workshop will
feature electro-acoustic adventures, a cyberspace extravaganza,
roundtables, and numerous informal gatherings around special
interests central to the workshop proceedings.
