A New “Public” Course at the BARNARD CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON WOMEN AMPLIFY: GENDER & VOICE IN ROCK MUSIC. Taught by Ingrid Hu Dahl Mondays: 10/4, 11/1, 12/13, 1/10, 2/7, 3/7, 4/4, 5/2 7:00-8:45 PM Fee: $300

Become your own Riot Grrrl by exploring self-expression, gaining confidence and skills in speaking and leading an audience, identifying your “message” and contributing to social change. Through the study of rock music, participants will analyze gender, review specific female musicians and identify the interlinking modalities of identity, image and performance. Participants will practice activism and amplify personal voice, review various blogs/articles and shorts clips from documentary films including Girls Rock! and various music videos. The course will include 1-2 contemporary female-fronted rock shows; and, in Riot Grrrl sentiment, learning to speak loudly and clearly with authority in a microphone at a music venue in Brooklyn, NY. Ingrid Hu Dahl is a founding member of the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls (Brooklyn, NY) and plays synth/bass/vox in the band RAD PONY (former member of BOYSKOUT). She holds an M.A. in Women’s & Gender Studies (Rutgers University) and has lectured nationally and internationally on women and rock, women’s leadership, youth media and social justice.
