Professor Julie C. Dunbar:


Segregated on Paper: 

Power and Peril of a

Women's Musicological Narrative

Professor Dunbar will invite us...

  •      To go behind-the-scenes on getting such a book published
  •      To “tour” its musical contents, with genres ranging from opera to rock
  •      To discuss the power of such a narrative, but also the perils of placing it into a “segregated” text.


Julie Dunbar is Professor of Music and the Faculty Development Coordinator at Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin, where she has taught instrumental music and music history for twenty-five years. Her research and past publications focus on music in sociocultural contexts as well as historical issues in music education. She has two degrees in music education as well as a doctorate in curriculum and instruction from UW-Madison.
