Museum Friends program
Landmark women celebrates the lives and passions of distinguished women living and working in Canberra. Our guest speaker for July is assistant curator and musicologist, Dr Jennifer Gall, from the National Film and Sound Archive.
Dr Jennifer Gall is Co-ordinator of Research Programs at the National Film and Sound Archive. She completed her doctorate at the ANU School of Music, where she is a Visiting Fellow. Oral history interviews have been an important part of her research methodology since her first publication, From Bullocks to Boeings: An Illustrated History of Sydney Airport. Jennifer’s subsequent publications have sought to restore lost voices of people who are often overlooked by historians. She researches the relationship between music and popular culture with a focus on traditional music and the music of hidden women musicians.
Jenny writes about music for The Canberra Times and is affiliated with the International Council of Traditional Music, the Kommission für Volksdichtung and the Musicological Society of Australia. She co-edited Antipodean Traditions: Australian Folklore in the 21st Century (2011).
