Gender Across Borders is planning a series about hip-hop, resistance, and feminism for February 5 & 6. We are seeking articles that tie together an analysis of race and gender with a consideration of the impact of music on social movements. Those with knowledge of music and/or a familiarity with resistance movements in countries that have experienced war or occupation are encouraged to submit. A broad range of material is welcome, from profiles of particular artists to commentary on the connection between hip-hop and resistance. Articles can focus on the United States or on other countries. Feel free to pitch your own ideas!
To apply, please submit your article (300 – 1500 words) along with a résumé or short summary of interests and experience to Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 29, 2010. Articles should include relevant links that provide additional information and, preferably, an image to run with the entry. No prior experience with blogging or professional writing is necessary. Anyone with an interest in social movements and music is welcome to contribute.
Decisions will be made by February 1, 2010 and all contributors must be available via email February 2-4 to participate in the editing and uploading process.
Please feel free to email Amy at the above address with any questions.
