The Society of Dance History Scholars Annual Conference 1998

The University of Oregon
Eugene, Oregon
June 18-21, 1998

The Program Committee welcomes submissions on a broad spectrum of topics
within dance history and related disciplines.  The open framework for the
1998 conference offers members exciting opportunities to propose panels or
sessions on themes of their own devising.  People with related interests are
encouraged to come together to propose group sessions organized around a
central topic.  Proposals for movement workshops and lecture-demonstrations
are also encouraged.  In addition, the Program Committee solicits proposals
for informal Working Groups, which bring together different constituencies
within the Society, and provide continuity from year to year for people
working in the same subfield of dance history.  Topics for currently ongoing
groups include Early Dance, Ethnicity and Dance, and Reconstruction.  As
always, the Program Committee also welcomes individual submissions.  In
addition, the Committee would  like to offer particular encouragement for
graduate students to apply, and to attend the conference.  In all cases the
Committee will aim to structure sessions in order to allow ample time for
discussion and the exchange of ideas.

Eugene, the host city for the conference, has been home to the University of
Oregon since it opened in 1876.  The conference will be held on the 280-acre
campus, which features more than two thousand varieties of trees.  Minutes
from campus, Spencer and Skinner buttes offer hikes and views of the
Willamette Valley and the Cascade Mountains, and Alton Baker Park provides
over 15 miles of biking and running trails along the Willamette River.
Travel a scenic hour west from Eugene to the cliffs and dunes of the Oregon
coast or an hour east to the Cascade Mountain Range, or stay within the
Willamette Valley and explore Oregon's vineyards.  Extend your stay in
Eugene after the conference to experience Oregon's natural beauty and the
1998 Oregon Bach Festival (Artistic Director, Hellmuth Rilling) featuring
fifty events in two weeks and the world premier of a new work for chorus,
orchestra and soloists by  Krzystof Penderecki.

Official conference accommodations include the Best Western GreenTree Inn,
the Best Western New Oregon Motel and the Phoenix Inn, all on the edge of
campus.  Other nearby options include University Housing, local inns, and

Guidelines for Proposals

The Program Committee welcomes proposals in the categories listed below:
        Research Papers
        Research-Paper sessions
        Working Groups, Roundtables or other formats

1.  Research Papers
        Research papers should be based on a topic of original research
which has not been published previously.  They should be designed to take no
more than 30 minutes to present, including any audio-visual materials.
Proposals may be submitted in one of two forms.
 Option A)  an abstract of no more than two pages in length.  The first
paragraph should state the topic, research method or framework of analysis,
and conclusion.  Subsequent paragraphs should outline how the presentation
is developed and describe type and amount of illustrative material, if used.
 A bibliography or statement of sources must be included; this may require
an additional page.
 Option B)  a complete paper, submitted in the form in which it will be
presented.  The paper should include a bibliography.  Students wishing to
apply for the Selma Jeanne Cohen Young Scholars Program must submit a
complete paper.  (See below for further instructions regarding the Selma
Jeanne Cohen Award.)
Research papers may be submitted either individually or as part of a session
with a unifying theme.

2. Research-Paper Sessions
         Three or four applicants may propose, together, a session of
related research papers (submitting for each proposed paper either an
abstract or the paper itself).  The abstracts and/or papers should all be
submitted by one of the participants, who should also include a covering
letter explaining the theme of the session and suggesting the order in which
the papers should be presented.

3.  Lecture-Demonstrations
        A proposal for a lecture-demonstration should be 1-2 pages in
length, and include a thorough description of the material to be covered, a
bibliography of sources, and a statement of the time and space required.  A
lecture-demonstration may take from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours.  If more than
one presenter is involved, the proposal should describe the contribution of
each person.

4.  Workshops
        A proposal for a workshop should include a written description of
the movement material, accompanied by a list of sources, a statement of the
time and space required, and of appropriate attire for the participants.  A
workshop may not exceed 1 1/2 hours.

5.  Working Groups, Roundtables or other formats
       Those wishing to propose a Working Group should explain the topic to
be discussed and give a sense of the general interest within the SDHS in
this topic.
       Those wishing to propose a Roundtable discussion or a session that
deviates from the traditional paper or lecture-demonstration format should
explain their idea and chosen format, the topic(s) to be discussed, and the
desired length of time.  The proposal should include a list of participants
and a brief abstract of each person's intended contribution.

All submissions should include a statement of audio-visual needs and, as
relevant, statements of the amount of time requested, space requirements,
and recommendations for attire.  Please do not submit videotapes or
photographs.  Submitters are encouraged to time their presentations in
advance to make sure that they adhere to the time limitations.  (Previous
experience indicates that 12 double-spaced pages usually require about 30
minutes to present orally, with slides or overhead projections requiring
30-60 seconds each. Please gauge your paper's length accordingly.)  In the
case of lecture-demonstrations and workshops, the Program Committee reserves
the right to make adjustments in the time requested in order to fit the
overall scheduling of the conference.

Only one submission is allowed per person.  In order to be considered,
proposals must conform to the guidelines and meet the deadline for
submission.  Note:  all presenters must be members of SDHS or join before
the conference, and must pay the registration fee for the conference.

Submissions should be accompanied by a stamped (excepting foreign
submissions), self-addressed postcard that will be used to confirm receipt
of the proposal.
Guidelines for the Selma Jeanne Cohen
Young Scholars Award Program

In recognition of Selma Jeanne Cohen's great contributions to dance history,
the Society of Dance History Scholars inaugurated an award in her name at
its 1995 conference.  The award is intended to encourage graduate students
by recognizing excellence in scholarship in the field of dance history.  Up
to three awards will be offered at each conference.  Each will consist of

        1) an invitation to present a paper at the conference;

        2) waiving of the conference fee;

        3) an award of up to $400 to assist the student's travel and other

A student wishing to apply for the 1997 Selma Jeanne Cohen Award should
submit his or her paper to the Program Committee, along with a cover letter
asking that the paper be placed in competition and also stating where and in
what program the student is enrolled.  The paper must conform to the
guidelines for Research Papers given in the Guidelines for Proposals and the
full text must be submitted.  The paper should be designed for oral
delivery; students should not enter dissertation chapters into the
competition.  Papers accepted by the Program Committee will be sent to the
SJC Award Committee, whose members will evaluate it on the basis of
originality and excellence of research, plus clarity of writing.  Students
will be notified of the results of the award deliberations within one month
of the acceptance of their papers.
