April 10-13, 2022 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

We are pleased to announce State of the Art: the 2022 International Symposium on Screendance.  The event will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and co-sponsored by the UW Art Department and the Department of Dance.  The symposium is generously supported by the Virginia Horne Henry Fund. This year’s symposium will focus on a number of topics that are timely to the field of screendance, including, but not limited to, the Feminist roots of screendance, the generational and evolving critical landscape of the field, de-colonizing screendance, race and gender in screendance, intersectionality and facilitating new ways of knowing the cinematic body and mapping the literature of the field.
