Aims and scope
DISCOURSES IN DANCE is an international, peer-reviewed, bi-annual journal
covering research in the field of dance and related areas. The Journal
aims to promote the development of dance research in the international
academic field. Articles address the rapidly expanding discipline of dance
studies as it is developing through scholarly and artistic forms of dance
DISCOURSES IN DANCE presents a platform for research which interrogates
dance as a cultural practice. The journal encourages the testing of new
methodologies against existing paradigms and the examining of dance in
relation to critical theories, cultural studies, and cognate disciplines.
Priority will be given to essays that explore dance's engagement with more
general social and political values and concerns, including but not
limited to issues of dance and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and
the impact of new technologies.
DISCOURSES IN DANCE is particularly committed to the building of broad
based and diverse coalitions of scholars and artists, and to exploring
areas currently under-represented in published dance scholarship.
Discourse of Dance will be of interest to dance scholars, lecturers,
researchers, artists, students and other dance professionals, as well as
academics and scholars from other fields.
