Women Who Rock unConference & Film Festival brings scholars, musicians, performers, visual artists, media-makers, and activists together to explore the role of women and women of color in the creation of popular music that anchors cultural scenes and social justice movements in Las Americas and Beyond. This multifaceted endeavor reshapes conventional understandings of music and cultural production by initiating collective methods of research, community and scholarly collaboration, and teaching. We encompass several interwoven components: an annual participant-driven conference and film festival; project-based coursework at the graduate and undergraduate levels; and a digital oral history archive hosted by UW Libraries that ties the various components together.
The Women Who Rock Research Project, is developed through collaborations between UW faculty, graduate students, artists, community members and scholars of gender, race and sexuality in music and social justice movements.
See attached word document for detailed description of intern duties, qualifications and responsibilities.
