Call for Contributions: 2012 Conversations Across the Field of Dance Studies
Issued yearly in autumn/winter, this peer-reviewed publication reflects the dynamic and diverse membership of SDHS, providing an informal form for scholarly engagement with our most exciting research issues.
Conversations is conceived as a “cross-over” publication that speaks to research agendas and the profession, addressing the concerns of the field through discursive, polemic, poetic and experiential articles.
Call for Contributions Autumn 2012:
Visual Culture and Performing Arts — an Academic Discipline
Guest editors: Tamara Tomic-Vajagic and Dr. Alessandra Lopez Y Royo
While we all engage visually with dance, how much are we aware of the specific issues of visual culture relating to our embodied experiences? While visual components cannot be separated from the overall dance content, with the increasing interest in the area of time-based art, media and visual culture as an academic and artistic fields, dance practitioners and scholars are investigating various possibilities in the area traditionally associated with the visual studies. Many recent dance exhibitions prove that exploring dance content as part of the cultural heritage in museums and gallery spaces is an emerging interest in the field of both dance and visual art studies. Students in academic programmes now increasingly explore aspects of dance as public art, and investigate various challenges posed to received ideas of dance as “art” objects.
