Transdisciplinary Methodologies and Modalities of the Moving Body in Performance
The Doctoral Students Association 2017 Conference
Join us for an interdisciplinary conference organized by the Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association (DTSA) interrogating dance scholarship and methodologies. This day-long conference aims to discuss and exchange methodological approaches to dance and to build a network for emerging scholars inside and outside of dance studies. The day will culminate in a public round table discussion with Thomas DeFrantz (Duke), Nadine George-Graves (UCSD), VK Preston (Toronto), Katherine Profeta (Queens College, CUNY), and Paul Scolieri (Barnard), moderated by Erika T. Lin (The Graduate Center, CUNY).
Followed by a performance intervention by The Bureau for the Future of Choreography.
