Gender-based Violence in Music Worlds. A Comparison between France and Japan

November 2023
Conferences, workshops and debates

Journée d’études organisée les 16 et 17 novembre 2023 en ligne et à l’INALCO (Maison de la recherche).

This workshop aims to deepen our scientific knowledge of gender-based violence in music worlds from a comparative perspective between France and Japan. It proposes to document, through field research, gender-based violence in its diversity and continuity – from sexist jokes, insistent flirtations, comments on physical appearance to legally reprehensible sexual behaviours such as rape, harassment or sexual assault. Based on an intersectional perspective and with attention to the power relations specific to the studied music worlds, the workshop aims to highlight the structural nature of gendered-based violence.
