The conference programming committee invites proposals for papers, panels, roundtable  discussions , lecture - demonstrations, movement workshops, dance works, and screendances that  address the question of how dance is transmitted across time, locations, contexts, and media, and  the implications of this transmiss ion in and outside the dance field. We invite proposals that  engage the following questions and topics :

How is dance transmitted? By what corporeal and incorporeal means does it extend its reach? In  what ways do dance forms and practices travel, and what  residues do they leave behind, marking  the event of their passing?  How and why might some dance forms resist working in more  common modes of transmission, desiring to reach some audiences and not others? When is this a  practice of resistance and when might it be a practice of maintaining hierarchies?  What is  transmitted through dance — what histories, legacies, cultural values, theories of the body, etc.?  How does dance materialize and re - materialize in different contexts? How does pedagogy  evolve? What is th e role of legacy? What are the stakes of different forms of transmission, and  who benefits from these different forms of circulation?

With this conference, we seek to address where  dance scholarship sit s in the broader arena of  dance transmission , with co nsiderations of how dance might be tracked, or how it might be  untraceable. We wish to explore  common assumptions about the vestiges of dance, and less  expected or less known ways that its traces manifest . We are further interested in how  dance  transmissio n interact s with educational and presentational practices , with  efforts to document  dance permeat ing the current legibility of dance as a cultural phenomenon . We look forward to  submissions that evaluate  the range of transmission processes , from one - on - one oral traditions to  viral electronic circulations , and that weigh notions of intellectual property, material and  immaterial culture, authorship, and spectatorship in  the project of  tracing dance transmissions.
