Fierce and Fearless


adj. expanded upon from a previous state; pushed beyond consonance or stasis; dissonant, requiring resolution

The word ‘augmented’ is often used in musical contexts to denote intervals with an extremely dissonant sonority; in fact, in early Western music, it was considered unholy to include them in sacred music, even to the point of labeling them as ‘satanic’. As music evolved drastically during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, however, modern composers began to experiment with and reframe their practices surrounding dissonance, and augmented intervals began to appear more commonly in the music of the day, most often as devices designed to pull the ear of the listener towards a new or previously peripheral musical idea.

Similarly, Frontiers Augmented seeks to create a means for deeper engagement with the content published in the Frontiers Journal by featuring author interviews, round table discussions, artist perspectives, podcast editions and beyond.

We hope that deeper context can create the dialogue that can enrich and drive forward academic and personal scholarship in gender and women’s studies as we all move forward.
