Expanding Notions; Dance/Practice/Research/Method

12th international NOFOD Conference
Reykjavík, Iceland
28–31 May 2015

The realm of dance practice and research manifests itself in multiple ways. Within dance studies as an interdisciplinary field, the notions of dance, practice and research are constantly challenged, leading to fundamental questions such as: what is practice and what is knowledge? This, in turn, may open up new methodological questions. Possibilities and connections are created between methods in practice and methods in research, in ways that lead us to revisit and revise the concept of method as such, and as a consequence question different approaches to knowledge. This conference will address the multiple understandings of methodologies in dance practice and research, in order to contest preconceived conceptions of methods and revise our understanding of doing and knowing.

The deadline for proposal submission has passed.
