Summary While ethnomusicologists and anthropologists have long recognized the theoretical connections between gender, place, and emotion in musical performance, these concepts are seldom analyzed together. Performing Gender, Place, and Emotion in Music is the first book-length study to examine the nexus between these three concepts from a cross-cultural perspective. Contributors consider ways in which locally produced musics emerge from and interact with particular structures of feeling while recognizing that the emotional terrains of musical performance are complex local, national, and global domains.
