Crowdfunding for Women in Brass and Military Bands c. 1940-1960


 

 

Today I am launching a crowd funding project to support my new research that explores the influence of women in brass and military bands c. 1940-1960.

The aim of this research project is to gain a fuller understanding of the role of women in brass and military bands, c. 1940-1960. This research bridges a gap between the Second World War and the upsurge of debate surrounding gender in the 1970s. As such this work not only contributes to the chronology of brass and military bands, but also significantly adds to the debate around issues of gender, status and identity. This project is indeed interdisciplinary.

This research will take eight months of visits to national and local archives. I am hoping to raise enough for travel, accommodation and some subsistence. I see this research being a journal article in a key musicology or social history journal. If you would like to fund this research that will be a substantial contribution to the scholarship of gender, please follow this link.

  1. As far as I know my mother was the first female to play at the CISWO band contest. If this is of interest please contact me.
