The Women and Music Project (WAMP) was founded at the WSRC in 2008 by Drs. Vivian Montgomery and Liane Curtis to explore the contributions of women to the field of music as composers, performers, teachers, scholars, and sponsors, and to bring their work to a wider public through lectures, concerts, recitals, conferences, publications, and recordings, featuring music composed by women and works that highlight and explore issues of women and gender.
The Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC) at Brandeis University is a research facility of scholars, students and faculty who study gender issues and women’s lives. Founded in 2001 by Shulamit Reinharz, Ph.D. ’77, the WSRC is the home of the Scholars Program, the Student-Scholar Partnership Program; the Arts Project and Kniznick Gallery; the Women and Music Project; and the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute. Throughout the year, members of the Scholars Program present their work in lectures, panels, exhibits, performances and concerts, many of which are open to the public and free of charge. We invite you to join us for events at the WSRC, “Where Research, Art and Activism Converge.” http://www.brandeis.edu/wsrc/
