Performing Memory Through Dance. Anthropological Perspectives

Online

17-18 June 2021
14.00-18.00

International Online Conference organized by Susanne Franco and Franca Tamisari 

The conference Performing Memory Through Dance. Anthropological Perspectives aims to explore anthropology’s contribution to dance studies by reflecting on the relationship between dance and memory as manifested in the dynamics of re-appropriation, re-signification and invention of the past. Considering dance and performance as central tools in the negotiation of power relations and as tactics of resistance and survival, with particular regard to colonial and postcolonial contexts, the additional objective of this conference is to investigate cultural and historic continuities and discontinuities.
