The International Journal of Screendance launches at the American
Dance Festival, Durham, North Carolina (USA) June 25th, 2010

The International Journal of Screendance published by Parallel
Press/University of Wisconsin-Madison USA, in collaboration with
University of Brighton UK, was launched at a reception hosted by the
American Dance Festival on June 25th.  The launch coincided with ADF’s
Dancing for the Camera: Festival of Dance on Film and Video and a
meeting of the Screendance Network.

The International Journal of Screendance is a new peer-reviewed
publication, the first-ever scholarly journal dedicated to the growing
area of the inter-disciplinary practice of screendance. It is an
initiative undertaken by an international group of practitioners,
researchers, curators and activists engaged with screendance who wish
to establish a forum for debate for all those interested in the
intersection of dance and the moving image.

The International Journal of Screendance is hosted by the University
of Wisconsin-Madison and published under the Parallel Press imprint.
Print and digital (online) versions of the first issue are now
available. The editorial board is constituted from members of the
International Screendance Network, based at the University of Brighton
and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK), as well
as scholars and artists from related fields of inquiry.

The International Journal of Screendance engages in rigorous critique
grounded in both pre-existing and yet-to-be articulated methodologies
from the fields of dance, performance, visual art, cinema and media
arts, drawing on their practices, technologies, theories and
philosophies. As an international platform for screendance
scholarship, the journal seeks to foster not only a multi-cultural but
also a multilingual discourse.

This Journal is essential reading for all those interested in the
intersection of dance and the moving image including film and
video-makers, dance artists, producers, composers as well as the wider
interested public. Its goal is to become an invaluable resource for
researchers and professionals in the field. The Journal includes
original scholarship and historically pertinent yet hard-to-find
writings, as well as specially commissioned articles.  Each issue will
be edited around a particular theme and a set of questions that frame
current discussions in the global field of screendance as a means of
promoting and enriching dialogue within the wider community of dance
and the moving image.

If you would like information on submitting to the Journal, please
