New Project, New Site

I’m thrilled to announce that Harmony Bench and I have been awarded funding by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) for a three-year research project that continues the work of this blog, and our more recent collaborative projects, Dance in Transit and Movement on the Move. Dunham’s Data: Katherine Dunham and Digital Methods for Dance Historical Inquiry will be studying how dance moves both across geographical locations and across networks of cultural, artistic, and financial capital through the case study of Katherine Dunham, as well as the kinds of questions and problems that make the analysis and visualization of data meaningful for dance historical inquiry. The project will be carried out with UK industry partners One Dance UK’s Dance of the African Diaspora and the Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as via international knowledge exchange partnerships with digital projects at OSU (US), Ludwig Maximilians Universität Munich (Germany), and the University of New South Wales (Australia).

A new project website will be up shortly, but in the meantime, here is the press release.
