Ameliorative work: Women electronic music artists’ responses to gender-based discrimination

Date: 12 May 2022
Time: 16:00-17:15 BST
Venue: Online via Zoom

In this free online seminar, Professor Samantha Parsley (University of Portsmouth) and Dr Marjana Johansson (University of Glasgow) present their recent paper which explores gender-based discrimination in the electronic music industry. Based on data collected for a larger project on women DJ producers, the paper takes as its starting point the gendered conditions, characteristics and lived experience of work in the cultural industries, and examines the invisible labour that women artists perform as they negotiate opportunities and manage their reputation and careers in this male-dominated creative occupation. The paper introduces the concept ‘ameliorative work’ to analyse both individual and collective efforts by women to survive and thrive in the industry.
