Voicing Gender

Event Details

19th November, 2014
End Date:
20th November, 2014
The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama Eton Avenue London NW3 3HY

Live discussions and online submissions feature in this event. In response to an article by Cambridge classicist and author Mary Beard, about the need for consciousness-raising around what is meant by the voice of authority in society, Voicing Gender will commission three podcasts about speaking out in a public place. They will explore the ways in which embodied vocal strategies, developed and researched within voice training, can help to inform the positioning of that authority for a number of speakers and thereby contribute to their successful reception.
