As we create a vital joint Dance Studies Association for the future, SDHS and CORD will be continuing all their publications, including Studies in Dance History, Conversations Across the Field of Dance Studies and Dance Research Journal.  At the same time, University Presses are under significant pressure to charge more for academic books.  The Endowment for Studies in Dance History is being created specifically to offer ongoing financial subventions for this important series.  Please contribute today and help preserve SDHS’s legacy!

All contributions are tax-deductible to the maximum allowable by U.S. law as a 501(c)3 organization.
