Dance Fields: Staking a Claim for Dance Studies in the 21st Century
19th – 22nd April 2017 University of Roehampton

A Conference convened by Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE), Coventry University; Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Dance (CIRID), De Montfort University and Centre for Dance Research, University of Roehampton

Call for papers, panels, performances and presentations

CFP Deadline Friday 30th September 2016

This conference offers the blurring of boundaries between scholarly, writerly and material based artistic practices; emergent discourses between and across disciplines. New forms of collaborative and collective working will be emphasised and explored via mixed modes of enquiry, presentation, participation and dialogue.

By asking, ‘Where are we now?' the conference will focus on strategic issues and questions pertaining to the UK socio-political landscape, whilst acknowledging the importance of the European and international dimensions as practices cannot be contained within any specific country-based framework.
