DANCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION
SEXUALITY, MEMORY, SPACE & MIGRATION
Fifth Annual University of California Dance Conference
5 April 2003
hosted by Dept. of World Arts and Cultures, UCLA
The UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures invites you to participate in a UC-wide interdisciplinary conference. We encourage scholars from all fields to present theoretical work, including performative papers/theoretical performances, which engages with discourses on the body and its ‘trans’ dimensions especially in relation to sexuality, memory, space and migration.
This conference is the fifth in a series of ongoing colloquia, which originated as an initiative of the graduate students of UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures. After traveling to other UC campuses, such as UC Riverside and UC Davis, Dance Under Construction will return next year to UCLA, where it will continue to serve as a platform for communication and exchange among all UC campuses and other graduate departments both nationally and internationally.
Proposals: Format for 15-20 minute presentations: papers, CD-roms, videos, and films. Proposals are welcome for panel sessions as well as individual papers.
Please send your 200-400 word abstract or panel proposals, with names of the presenters, by 17 January to the address below.
Please include your e-mail address, any technical needs you may have, and department affiliation. For further questions, please contact us at the following e-mail addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or the address listed below (you can also send your proposals by email at the same addresses).
Notification will be made by 15 February.
