    DISCO! An Interdisciplinary Conference
    University of Sussex
    21-23 June 2018

    From its origins as a New York City subculture amongst gay, black and Latino/Latina practitioners, and its transition into the mainstream, to its subsequent lives across international scenes, disco poses pivotal questions about the entanglements of art, industry, identity, and community. Disco is the site of many significant and lasting debates in popular culture, including those surrounding the figures of the DJ and the diva, the status and significance of dancing bodies, the tension between what is authentic and what is synthetic, and the historic maligning of society’s others.

    This major interdisciplinary international conference aims to examine and expand these debates. We therefore invite researchers from a range of academic backgrounds to re/consider disco cultures in their shifting historic and social contexts. We hope to explore disco as a tentacular phenomenon that reaches across multiple sites of production and consumption, from music and dance to fashion and film.

    Keynote Presentations by:

    Melissa Blanco Borelli (Royal Holloway, University of London)

    Tim Lawrence (University of East London).

    Potential points of entry:

    Disco as interdiscipline: music, dance, film, fashion, culture, fandom

    Disco as place: Disco reaches beyond its NYC origins. How has disco travelled? What are its different geographic and cultural contexts?

    Disco as space: What kinds of spaces are explored by disco - its dancefloors, its clubs, its streets, its towns?

    Disco as identity: Disco’s queerness, disco’s blackness, disco’s Latino/a-ness, disco’s women. Who made disco and for whom was it made? What other disco populations exist out there today? Considering disco’s appropriation by white-dominated culture.

    Disco as history: Disco has outlasted its heyday in the 1970s. What were its historical roots and what have been (and will be) its futures?

    Disco as affect: sweat, strobe, glitter, ecstasy, sex, stamina

    Death to disco: How has disco been attacked? Exploring backlash, homophobia, racism, and rockism

    We welcome proposals for conference papers of 20 minutes but also for pre-formed panels, roundtable discussions, or formats that allow for the presentation of praxis (installations, lecture performances, for instance).

    Please send a 300-word abstract, along with a short biography and indication of the format of your proposed presentation to: disco@sussex.ac.uk by Friday 2 March 2018.

    Organisers:

    Mimi Haddon (Lecturer in Music, School of Media, Film and Music)

    Michael Lawrence (Reader in Film Studies, School of Media, Film and Music)

    Arabella Stanger (Lecturer in Drama: Theatre and Performance, School of English)

    I have recently launched my history of Limbs Dance Company to commemorate 40 years since its founding. With the advent of Limbs in 1977, the language of movement in New Zealand changed inextricably, expanding and exploding the definition of dance from this small South Pacific nation. Fundamentally, the founding members of Limbs believed that dance could reflect common human issues and emotions and was capable of touching people from all walks of life. With this belief, they made dances that were simultaneously relevant, challenging, sexy, serious, fun and exciting. Limbs dances both reflected and shaped the zeitgeist of 1970 - 1980s New Zealand. Such a wide array of dances not only entertained and excited the general public, but also inspired other choreographers and artists from different fields to explore their own artistic voices. Spanning years of political protests and economic reforms, the works that Limbs presented in this time period and their performance settings - large music festivals, prisons and opera houses - reflect the changing nature of New Zealand society.

    The Reed College Dance Department invites applications for a full-time, one-year visiting position in Dance, beginning Fall 2018.  Salary is competitive and includes a full range of benefits as well as support for travel and research. 

    The position is focused in Critical Dance Studies. The successful candidate would teach five courses over two semesters, including introductory dance history, a junior dance studies seminar, and three additional dance studies, studio, and/or hybrid courses in the candidate’s area(s) of expertise. We especially encourage candidates who have expertise both within and beyond the Euro-American concert tradition. Our pedagogy emphasizes the integration of theory and practice; the ideal candidate would seek to enhance work in the classroom with studio activities and vice versa.

    As a small, collaborative department, all members of the dance faculty contribute to the supervision of senior thesis projects, the production of performances and events with students and visiting artists, and the ongoing development and administration of the dance program. Above all, we seek candidates with a strong commitment to teaching excellence at the undergraduate level, a lively intellectual and artistic engagement with the field, and an interest in contributing to a vital and diverse curriculum. Ideal candidates will have Ph.D. in hand by the start of the appointment. Information on Reed's Dance Department is available at http://academic.reed.edu/dance/ 

    Reed College is a small, distinguished liberal arts institution committed to excellence in teaching and scholarship. Reed students are known for their outstanding intellectual engagement and creativity. Reed’s new Performing Arts Building, opened in Fall 2013, provides a vital facility for new initiatives in the performing arts and for fostering interdisciplinary opportunities. Having newly instituted a major in Dance in Fall 2016, the program has begun to accrue a cohort of serious dance students. Portland, Oregon has a thriving artistic community, numerous dance companies, a major dance presenting organization and an international performing arts festival.

    Reed College is a community that believes cultural diversity is essential to the excellence of our academic program. In your cover letter, please include a description of how you would engage and sustain the commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in Reed College's diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity/).

    Please send a cover letter, CV, writing sample (article or chapter length), sample syllabus that you feel is representative of your teaching, sample of creative work if relevant, and three letters of recommendation to http://apply.interfolio.com/47105. These materials may include links to works online. Review of applications will begin February 15, 2018. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Questions may be addressed to Victoria Fortuna, chair of the search committee, at fortunav@reed.edu. An Equal Opportunity Employer, Reed College values diversity and encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups.
