      Long Ago and Far Away: Intra-european perspectives on early modern dance.
      Early Dance at Kalamazoo
      45th International Congress on Medieval Studies

      The 45th International Congress on Medieval Studies takes place May
      13-16, 2010.

      Early Dance at Kalamazoo is an organization formed to encourage further
      scholarship at Kalamazoo in the field of early dance and its relation to
      other disciplines, including literature, art history,
      musicology, theater, history, and textiles through the interdisciplinary
      pursuit, independently or in conjunction, of textual and performative
      research. We are particularly interested in forming links between scholars
      in the field of dance history and those in other disciplines, as each group
      is, to its detriment, often unaware of the significant work done by the
      other. We focus on different aspects of issues in dance reconstruction and
      the general subject area, bringing together scholars of dance, manuscript
      illumination, textiles, and church history.

      This year's proposed session looks at cross-cultural aspects of and
      perspectives on early modern dance, its history, and textual background,
      such as the Renaissance French interpretation of dance in the Ottoman
      Empire. It is a segment of the field that is rarely studied or discussed and
      deserves greater attention in order to further understanding of greater
      cross-cultural currents in 15th and 16th century Europe.

      We are seeking papers dealing with these themes for the session
      entitled "Long Ago and Far Away: Intra-european perspectives on early
      modern dance."  Abstracts are to be sent to earlydanceatkzoo@...
      and are needed before the end of September.
