SDHS/CORD Annual Conference 2015

"Cut & Paste: Dance Advocacy in the Age of Austerity"

Athens, 4 to 7 June 2015

The theme of the 2015 joint SDHS/CORD conference in Athens, Greece gives us an important opportunity not only to address the issues surrounding dance advocacy both locally and internationally, but also to actually put that idea into practice by supporting a dance community hit especially hard by the global financial crisis.  By coming to Athens at this particular historical moment, SDHS and CORD members are actively helping our colleagues in Greece to affirm dance as scholarly endeavor as well as a professional occupation.
