This monograph brings together more than fifty cutting edge articles on a broad range of current issues in the field. Voice and Gender explores the relationship between vocal expression and gender identity and the norms associated with gendered roles. The text questions gender norms and examines how they may inhibit our range of expression. An emphasis is placed on how the performer and instructor might overcome these barriers in taking on a role outside of their own gender identity. Gender remains one of the most misunderstood and divisive facets of human nature. Voice and Gender challenges readers to reexamine the way they hear, perceive, and express the concept of gender and sexual identity within their performance as well as in their own lives.
