Dance Research Australia Postgraduate Forum 2021 Program
As part of the Australasian Drama Studies Association (ADSA) conference 2021, Dance Research Australia has organised a forum for postgraduate dance research candidates anywhere in Australia. MA and PhD students will present summaries their projects, share their research, and hope to make connections with fellow researchers through short, 15-minute Zoom presentations. The structure will also allow time for questions and discussion.
Dance Research Australia is an international network that curates, connects and activates research to build capacity and invigorate dance praxis locally and globally, amid the ever-present histories and current critical discourses of the Australian context. Dance Research Australia fills a gap in the Australian dance ecology to build research capacity by facilitating a series of new engagement platforms. These include post graduate forums, reading groups, publications initiatives, presentations of artist led research and scholarly panels. The network focuses on community-building, visibility, and inclusivity: that is, broadening the current scope through encouraging new work and attracting, connecting and supporting emerging and established researchers. It is focused on Australian scholars, writers and artist-researchers working in the field of dance and allied fields both inside and outside the institution, and both locally and internationally. It advocates for the capacity of Australian dance research to attend to anti-colonial imperatives that connect it with critical change toward equity and justice.
