Choreographies of Migration: Dance and Immigration Conference
Deadline:  proposals must be received by February 1, 2007

To celebrate the 40th  anniversary of the Congress on Research in Dance and
the centennial of José  Limón (1908 - 1972), CORD in partnership with Barnard
College and the Limón  Institute will host a conference titled
"Choreographies of Migration" in New  York City on November 8 - 11, 2007. The
interdisciplinary conference aims to  gather scholars and artists to explore
dance's past, present and future  through the critical prism of migration.

The Conference Program Committee  invites proposals for individual papers,
panels, lecture-demonstrations and  workshops on all aspects of the
performing arts, especially those that  engage questions related to the
conference theme: How has migration shaped  the course of dance history? What
are the methodological and theoretical  implications of migration studies for
dance research? How do particular  dance styles embody migratory histories?
How has migration transformed the  pedagogy and performance of traditional
dance forms? What are the particular  histories of networks of teachers,
artists, and critics that constitute "the  dance world"? What could dance
reveal about the experiences and conditions  of immigration, diaspora, exile,
detention, globalization, displacement, and  other forms of social

Possible topics include  historical, ethnographic and/or theoretical studies

global  migrations of social, theatrical, sacred dance, and/or theatrical
dance and the exilic memory
new research on ancient  migrations
immigration policy and the arts
migratory rituals and border  performances
transnational or "world" music and dance forms

The  conference will take the occasion of José Limón's centennial to reflect
on  the ways that immigrant experiences shaped dance modernism in the US and
abroad. As such, we especially invite proposals that explore the impact of
immigration on the life and work of artists such as José Limón, George
Balanchine, Eiko & Koma, Garth Fagan, Geoffrey Holder, Hanya Holm,  Rudolf
Laban, Vaslav Nijinksky, Pearl Primus, and Yuriko, among many  others.
