Dr Tina Richardson will be talking about how the rock of the 1970s disguised misogyny through the employment of myth within the lyrics of the music. By looking at the character of the femme fatale, most well-known in literature and film, Tina will explore the dynamic of this female archetype and examine how in music it is masked behind a veil of mythology. Mostly concentrating on progressive rock, although not exclusively, the lecture will provide examples of music and utilise paintings of mythological subjects from art history. All welcome.
