Gender, Sexuality and Popular Music
Explores the ways in which gender and sexual identities are both reflected in and modified by mainstream popular music: from "girl power' to boy bands; from outwardly gay and lesbian artists to the gay appropriation of heterosexual female divas; from the camp masculinity of heavy metal to lesbian rock and riot grrrls; from women-hating gangster rappers to powerful women in the recording industry.
