Free for students!

Jazz artist, author and current Professor for Artistic Research at the Jam Music Lab Private University in Vienna, Dr. Monika Herzig joins us to discuss her recent book. Nominated for the Jazz Journalists Association Book of the year 2023, ‘The Routledge Companion To Jazz And Gender’ identifies, defines, and interrogates the construct of gender in all forms of jazz, jazz culture, and education, shaping and transforming the conversation in response to changing cultural and societal norms across the globe. This edited collection of 38 essays gathers the diverse perspectives of contributors from four continents, exploring the nuanced (and at times controversial) construct of gender as it relates to jazz music, in the past and present. Join us for a presentation on the book and a Q&A session with Monika!
