Faculty Writing: On the Neoliberal Turn in American Classical Music; and Lillian Faderman’s Selective Histories of Feminism

For The Baffler, Nathan Shields explores the neoliberal turn in American classical music and how it shapes the professional lives of contemporary composers, who today must negotiate a discomfiting trio of ascribed roles—from genius to technocrat to entrepreneur.

Also for The Baffler, Sophie Lewis reviews historian Lillian Faderman’s “unabashedly homonormative” new book, Woman: The American History of an Idea, observing that “Faderman was a working-class parvenu, a habituée of deviant subcultures, a breakout star who wrote highly accessible prose—and/but not a radical.”
