The Other D Keynote Address: Disciplinarity and the Future of Dance in Canadian Universities
The increasing number of “studies” programs in universities has provided many opportunities for researchers interested in moving beyond traditional intellectual boundaries. New scholarly conversations, new methodologies, and new institutional alliances have resulted. Yet, the plurality implicit in the studies model should not obscure the benefits of preserving discrete disciplines.
This talk will address how dance research in Canada has benefited from interdisciplinarity while also outlining ways to protect and enhance dance’s presence within Canadian universities.
