The CORD awards were established to:

    • recognize scholarly excellence 
    • contribute to motivating further research 
    • signal to the scholarly world at large the work of the individuals recognized.

The awards contribute not only to the visibility of the individuals and works honored, but also to the visibility of dance research and to our continuing drive for excellence in dance scholarship. Consider your nomination a way to influence the field and the CORD organization.  By acknowledging your mentors, recognizing individuals who have strongly influenced you or created opportunities for you, your peers or organization, naming those who have expanded your conception of dance research, or initiated directions you'd like to see dance research (and CORD) take in the future, you participate in formulating that future.
