The Department of Music welcomes Professor Maureen Mahon of New York University to our Ethnomusicology Colloquium Series.

The subject of the talk is "Tina Turner’s Turn: Gender, Race, Genre, and the Queen of Rock." Vocalist Tina Turner made strategic decisions about musical repertoire and performance style that allowed her to navigate the gender, race, and genre restrictions that governed popular music. Ultimately, this enabled her to leave behind the economically marginalized genre of rhythm and blues and become the “The Queen of Rock” in the 1980s.
