"Danza e ricerca. Laboratorio di studi, scritture, visioni" soliciting contributions for its 12th issue


"Danza e ricerca. Laboratorio di studi, scritture, visioni" is soliciting original contributions for its 12th issue, scheduled for publication by the end of 2020. D&R is an open access journal edited by Elena Cervellati and Elena Randi and published by the Department of Arts (University of Bologna). 

Based on a wealth of interdisciplinary of materials, ideas, and fertile connections, D&R wants to continue in this direction and maintain its miscellaneous structure. We would like to invite international dance scholars to send us their free topic articles for our next 2020 issue.

We can accept articles focused on either contemporary and historical dance. The type of contributions we will accept range from historiography, to theory, to reviews, and should incorporate an extensive use of research tools deriving from interrelated disciplines such as anthropology, philosophy, sociology, and pedagogy. The paper should be written in either Italian, French, or English, and the length should be between 25,000 and 60,000 characters, including spaces.

We also encourage the submission of already published articles and translations, provided that they are in the public domain or are accompanied by permission from the copyright holders. 

Finally, applicants are welcome to submit bibliographies on particular topics in the dance field (e.g. concerning specific disciplines, dance practices, dancers, and choreographers). Each bibliography should be accompanied by a critical introduction.
