Introduction to The Other 'D': A Forum on Dance Studies in Canada
AbstractA document of ongoing conversations about the importance of dance-friendly academic spaces in Canada begun at the symposium The Other 'D': Locating Dance in Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies in Canada, held in January 2016, at the University of Toronto's Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies, this forum engages with an understanding of dance as the movement of bodies through space and time, equally corporeal and consequential, as it plays out in the academy. Exploring the inter- and transdisciplinary fields of dance and dance studies through their history and historiography, archive, and future, this forum's authors--Megan Andrews, Seika Boye, Henry Daniel, Emma Doran, Evadne Kelly, Allana Lindgren, Susan Manning, Stefanie Miller, Gdalit Neuman, and MJ Thompson--present a vast and differentiated perspective both on the effect dance's incorporation into the academy has had on it, and the pedagogical, methodological, and social effects dance has had on the academy.
