Call for Contributions
The performing arts have always embodied and reflected the political, cultural and social life of Pacific peoples. This special issue invites submissions of scholarly articles, reflection pieces, video, images, visual montages, and original artwork on the theme of dance, gender, and the moving body in Oceania. In addition to general submissions related to these themes, guest editors Teaiwa, Henderson, and Mallon—convenors of the 2005 international conference Culture Moves! Dance in Oceania from Hiva to Hip Hop—also warmly encourage reflections on that conference and/or discussion of Oceanic dance initiatives, symposia, or research that may have developed since.
Questions to be considered could include (but are not limited to):
Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2010 (note extension>
Submissions and enquiries should be directed to Katerina Teaiwa, or April K Henderson.
