An Invitation from Ann Cooper Albright – SDHS conference, Athens

Dear Dance Studies Colleagues,

I am writing to invite you to participate in a unique event in Athens, Greece next June 4-7th.  The theme of this international gathering of dancers, scholars, choreographers and teachers is “Cut and Paste:  Dance Advocacy in the Age of Austerity.”  This multi-dimensional conference will tackle many issues concerning dance studies at both the local and the global level.  In addition to a scholarly conference jointly sponsored by Society of Dance History Scholars, Congress on Research in Dance and the Hellenic branch of the International Theatre Institute, there will be a variety of dance classes and performances by Greek companies.  We are also seeding the first international Dance Research Collection in Greece.

Please join us for this exciting and important series of discussions and events.  For more details and the call for proposals, please visit:

I hope to see you there,

Ann Cooper Albright

Chair, Conference Committee
