A Non-Governmental Organisation in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO
The ICTM Study Group on Music and Gender determined at its second meeting at the Freie Universität in West Berlin on July 27-29, 1987, that it seeks to promote the growth of insight and understanding of gender as a critical factor in social interaction and thereby contribute meaningful theoretical dimensions to any study of musical culture. A gender balanced view of musical and dance activities is required since our work produces documents which in the future will be a source for historians and other scholars. Towards this end we will:
1. Encourage understanding of gender in terms of the roles it
plays in Society.
2. Stimulate critical evaluation of gender roles within our discipline.
3. Identify basic lacunae in the areas of music and dance cross-culturally.
4. Expand the methodological and theoretical bases for data collection and provide a forum for the presentation and interpretation of new material.
5. Publish and disseminate research findings.

1. Despite requests on the listserve for nominations for a co-chair of
this study group, none have been forthcoming. Since Carol Babiracki\'s
resigniation, I remain the sole chair. However, I am hopeful that
nominations may be more forthcoming from members whenever the study
group next meets.
