The Roehampton cohort (four academics and seven students) is the largest from a UK university and one of the biggest from a single university during the event.
One of the symposium themes is ‘dance and narratives’, and all the Roehampton academics address this theme from their area of specialism.
In her representation, PhD student Deborah Williams will outline her research into transformation experiences of 'non-trained' dancers. In addition, six graduates from the Choreomundus master’s programme (Choreomundus - International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice, and Heritage), who completed their degree at Roehampton in June will also present.
Dr Ann R. David, Head of Dance said: “This is the most important meeting of academics interested in the research, documentation, and interdisciplinary study of traditional dance’. The exceptional number of speakers from Roehampton is testament to the department’s strength, standing, and expertise in this field.”
Full event details can be found on the ITCM website.
