22nd Annual Oxford Dance Symposium
Owing to the escalation of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, the 22nd Annual Oxford Dance Symposium has been deferred and will now take place on 20th & 21st April 2021.
Organised by Michael Burden and Jennifer Thorp.
Call for Papers: Watching Dance, Dancers and Audiences
The Oxford Dance Symposia focus on the technique, practice and philosophy of dance during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, and we always welcome papers on any aspect of dance during this period.
Each year, however, we have a light touch theme that is central to the programme to which participants are invited to respond if they wish. The theme for 2020 will be 'watching dance, dancers and audiences' as always, to be interpreted as broadly as possible. It can, for example, include theatrical performances, communal dancing, private lessons, the physiology of dance, such as Weaver's Mechanical Lectures or medical claims that dancing was healthy exercise, and recording dances.
The Call for Papers has now closed.
