Organised by Michael Burden and Jennifer Thorp
Call for Papers: Reading Dance
The first Dance Symposium at New College took place on 21 April 1999 with 'Dance on the English Stage', and has become a yearly event. Each symposium is designed to explore different aspects of dance, with particular reference to its musical, theatrical, literary and social context during the long eighteenth-century.
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 2019 will be 'reading dance' in all its forms. 'Reading' has come to mean the end process of 'analyzing a text', and in this symposium, we welcome discussions of how aspects of dance convey meaning, and how patterns of content and language shape such portrayals.
Those wishing to submit abstracts (of 200 words) should do so to firstname.lastname@example.org by
21st November 2018.
