CALLIOPE on the road: Historicising Masculinities

The conference "Historicising Masculinities" was held at Newcastle University on 2-4 July 2019. CALLIOPE PI Josephine Hoegaerts presented her paper “Men, Women and Tenors”.

The cross-disciplinary conference discussed how masculinity can be studied in relation to history, and how historiography may change the way masculinities are perceived.

Hoegaerts’ paper discussed masculinity and maturity through 19th century choir boys, the description of their voices, and attitudes toward the voice change in adolescence. Her talk was live tweeted by Jessica Meyer (link to Twitter).
