Event Description

Four days of programming includes an array of presentations including plenary panels, lecture demonstrations, roundtables, and working groups. EXPLODE!-a series of performance events on- and off-campus-considers how dance scholarship looks different when queer folks actively author spaces for gathering. Evening programs curated by In/Motion Dance Film Festival reflect on the conference theme. Exhibits at the Northwestern library highlight resources for dance research in the John Cage Collection and the Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies.
