The Gender and Sexualities Taskforce is devoted to encouraging the study of music, gender, and sexuality, and to exploring issues of gender and sexuality as they impact the professional lives of ethnomusicologists.

Mission Statement

The Gender and Sexualities Taskforce is an official section of the Society for Ethnomusicology. We encourage music scholars -- particularly those who care about the broad range of issues falling under the rubric of ethnomusicology -- to incorporate the study of music and sexualities into their research, writing, and teaching. Our aim is to sponsor regular forums on music and sexualities at annual meetings of SEM. We welcome the participation of scholars conducting research in music and sexualities cross-culturally as well as within their own societies. Our goals include promoting communication and diversity within the Society for Ethnomusicology with special regard to the concerns of scholars, students, and public sector advocates identifying variously as, but not limited to: lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirited, homosexual, and transgendered. We are concerned about widely diverse issues, including increased life chances and professional advancement, for members of these constituencies across lines of nation, religion, gender, race, class, and ethnicity. Our goal is to serve as a springboard for activism and as a harbinger of hope for scholars throughout the world as we address issues of sensitivity at our various places of work and learning. Taskforce membership is open to all SEM members.
