  • Information


Dance Studies is a major academic and practice field and the 2017 Dance Fields Conference staked a claim for Dance Studies in the 21st century. The twelve essays collected here capture much of the range and spirit of the conference presentations.

The co-conveners of the conference and now editors of the collection invited contributions that covered multiple themes, including the documentation of overlooked or emerging histories; new critical insights, initiatives and perspectives (including inventive dissemination platforms); fresh interdisciplinary exchanges or other innovative insights.

Authors include practitioners, teachers and researchers from a range of backgrounds and geographical locations.

The editors have organised the book into a series of companion writings; companion because they focus on a similar or related theme, or method.

Several chapters are co-authored, revealing the companionship that is a common feature of teaching, practice and research in Dance Studies more generally.
