Welcome to WAM!

We aim to promote and amplify new research on women’s participation in art music throughout history and across cultures. Our mission is informed by our community–the Music Department of the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University–which is home to active programs in both applied music and music as a humanistic area of inquiry. Our site brings specialized research to a broader public, including students, teachers, performers, ensemble directors, and listeners.

We are supported by the Aresty Research Center at Rutgers. Learn more here!
