The Society of Dance History Scholars is delighted to announce our 35th Annual Conference “Dance and the Social City,” hosted by the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. At this event, SDHS will welcome scholars and artists from across the globe as we consider histories and narratives of dance and the social city. SDHS defines history in the broadest possible way and includes in its conference programs a wide range of research methodologies, interpretive approaches, and analytic techniques.
Meeting in the City of Brotherly Love affords us the opportunity to consider the rich traditions of social dance and performance inspired by one of the nation's largest metropolitan areas. We look forward to sharing workshops, papers, and entire panels that engage with dance practices in Philadelphia, and that rethink the multiple meanings of social and city: urban identities, dance as a site of social exchange, historical and contemporary iterations of dance and city planning.
The SDHS 35th annual conference committee will announce featured panels and keynote presentations for the event soon. Please join us for a rich exchange of current research. Check back often for updated program information!
