Professor of Dance is an Award Recipient

By Elizabeth Romero Student Intern of CHASS College Computing

Assistant Professor of Dance Priya Srinivasan has been awarded The Gertrude Lippincott Award. This award is presented to authors for their outstanding English-language articles whose primary focus is on dance studies.

Priya Srinivasan's article titled "The Bodies Beneath the Smoke or What's Behind the Cigarette Poster: Unearthing Kinesthetic Connections in American Dance History" reasserts the well-known thought of modern dance history. The judges' comments on Srinivsan's article state that the “essay makes possible a truly inclusive understanding of the whole, including the artist, the informants, and the period. Her writing is a creative blend of thorough research, detailed analysis, and several eloquent and informative voices. She effectively theorizes the embodied materiality of colonial appropriation in St. Denis' Nautch and exposes important roots of modern dance in popular cultural idioms."

Priya Srinivasan was informed of her award Saturday June 14th during the society's annual conference in Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York.
