The Society of Dance History Scholars and the Congress on Research in Dance are excited to announce a joint conference at the University of Iowa, home of the renowned Writers' Workshop in Iowa City, Iowa, a UNESCO-designated City of Literature.  The 2014 location will provide an impetus to explore the interplay between dancing and writing, globally, historically, and within contemporary culture.  The site of the Event provides opportunity to examine issues of authorship, representation, and narrative in dancing and writing practices across social and cultural contexts.  Bringing writing and dancing into dialog allows us to once again assess their relationship in consideration of medium, form, methodology, aesthetics, authorship, tradition, temporality, duration, meaning, and communication.
