20211121T1800 20211121T2000 America/Chicago Equity in the Study of Childhood and Youth

In this session, members of the Study Group on Childhood and Youth will examine how normative (adult) power structures, priorities, and fears have shaped, limited, devalued, or appropriated children. Music has been used to encourage the "authentic" voice of the child – the "infant" (Lat. "voiceless one") – and it has also been used to silence it. Through our research we have the opportunity to speak up for young people and enable them to speak for themselves, arguing for equity in music scholarship and society, in history and in the present. 

Presentations will be seven minutes long, followed by seven-minute responses. Presentations will be pre-circulated to registered attendees.
