    Deidre Sklar has an academic library available for donation to an institution; it includes volumes on dance ethnology and history; theatre; cultural anthropology; performance studies; area studies; embodiment theory across fields, etc.

    Professor Sklar also seeks a young (or not young) scholar or student to work with her sorting through her teaching materials (syllabii, readings, slides and video tapes) with an eye to inheriting them. This is potentially a very exciting project for the right person. It is possible the library could go with this person.

    She also has available back volumes of DRJ, Cultural Anthropology, Journal of American Folklore, and especially a full set of the UCLA Dance Ethnology Journal.

    Ever since Degas’s dancers twisted and reached their bodies through codified regimens of movement practice and everyday studio rituals, the intimate relation between dance and the visual arts has entered into discussions of modernism.  The mysteries of motion in dance have challenged visual artists to create new forms:  Toulouse-Lautrec’s Moulin Rouge performers seem to bend space with their very movements; and Matisse’s cut-outs of dancers and other subjects seem to transcend their materiality by literally detaching themselves from the page.  Dancers, in turn, have pushed the boundaries of their art form to respond to theories and currents in the visual arts.  Yvonne Rainer’s post-modernist manifesto, “The Mind Is a Muscle,” propounds that dancers ought to apply the minimalist tendencies of contemporary sculpture to dance to chart new territory, and she did just that in her choreography The Mind Is a Muscle, Trio A.

    With this in mind, we invite research manuscript submissions for a special issue of Dance Chronicle on the theme of “Kinetic, Mobile, and Modern: Dance and the Visual Arts,” to be edited by Joellen A. Meglin and Lynn Matluck Brooks.  We want to explore the ways in which dance and the visual arts have intersected, converged, dialogued, and propelled one another forward, whether through felicitous collaboration or the unique visuo-spatial talent of an individual.
