Call for Proposals

"Sophie’s Parlor Politics: 40 Years of Women in Radio"

A conference sponsored by the women of Sophie’s Parlor

Saturday - March 10, 2012

Sophie's Parlor Women's Radio Collective will be presenting special programming to honor the Fortieth Anniversary of the collective. We are planning to celebrate Women's History Month by hosting a weekend of music and dialogue featuring local artists, music experts, and female radio programmers. This event is in honor of International Women's Day (March 8th), Women's History Month (March), Sophie’s founders and alumnae, and female musicians, artists, and activists who have collaborated with Sophie’s over the years.

Sophie’s Parlor is the oldest continuously running women’s music radio collective in the United States. Founded in 1972 at Georgetown University, Sophie’s has been a part of the Pacifica Network on WPFW, 89.3 FM in Washington, D.C. since 1977. Sophie’s Parlor presents an eclectic mix of women’s music from around the world every Thursday from 1-3 pm. Additionally, we host and produce compelling discussions on women’s issues ranging from music, to domestic violence, to health, to social justice.

We invite scholars, artists, activists, and professionals to submit proposals for presentations, workshops, papers, or exhibits. [NOTE: Individuals submitting papers for consideration must be prepared to present a speech/synopsis of the paper in panel sessions rather than merely reading the paper aloud.]

The first half of the conference will be focused on women and the arts/music. The second half will focus on women’s social and political issues.

Deadline – January 15, 2012

Proposals should be submitted to:

(electronic submissions only please)

Please include a short description of each presentation and a one-page c.v. for each presenter.

We are looking forward to a fabulous conference!
