Dance Under Construction XIII
Dance Under Construction (DUC) is an interdisciplinary forum for presenting graduate student work theorizing dance, performance, and the body. It originated as an initiative of the graduate students of UCLA’s Department of World Arts and Cultures and has been hosted by various UC campuses. DUC has grown to an annual student-run event for dance and performance scholars, as well as those in related disciplines. Designed for the development of intellectual inquiry in a supportive and rigorous environment, the conference offers students a chance to explore through experimental modes of research and performance. This interdisciplinary event provides a rare and important discursive space for the stimulation and presentation of cutting-edge research in topics related to the body as a site of cultural identification.

Coordinators: Natalia Zervou, Meghan Quinlan, Jennifer Aubrecht
