We have two pieces of news this week.
Antonio, Kate, and Harmony were all supposed to be in Ottowa right now for DH2020, but the pandemic shifted things online. Here is the lighting talk that Antonio was set to present on behalf of Dunham's Data.
We are working on some interactive visualizations to share the datasets we've been manually curating in order to trace Dunham's travels over decades, the performers who traveled with her, and the pieces they performed.
Hi! My Name is Tia-Monique and I am excited to join Dunham’s Data as a Dance History Postdoctoral Research Assistant. My research and PhD deal with African and African Diasporic movement aesthetics.
As a dance scholar, I actually spend a lot of my time thinking about teaching. While I am always interested in new pedagogical perspectives and advancements in classroom technology one of my core interests is in how legacies related to 20th century American dance are shared with students.
One of the questions we hear a lot when we describe the daily itinerary dataset we’re building is “That takes a ton of work! Is it really worth it?” We’d like to share an example of why this work is important, not only for our specific project, but for dance studies as a field.
We're looking forward to sharing some of our work at the Association for Computers and the Humanities conference in Pittsburgh. Harmony and Kate will be giving a talk on Thursday July 25th on the 9am panel on Race and Data.
