Dancing as Grass/rising relentlessly | Ada Comstock Distinguished Women Scholars Award

11/1/17, 4:00 PM

About this event

Co-sponsored with the University Libraries and the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost

Join us in honoring Professor Ananya Chatterjea, Department of Theater Arts and Dance, 2017 Ada Comstock Distinguished Women Scholars Award recipient! RSVP encouraged here.

About the event
How does dance figure in academia and in community organizing? Can it communicate vital ideas, archive little-known histories, and activate audiences towards subjugated knowledges? This event works through a community-embedded performance (an excerpt from Shyamali, 2017) about women's stories of dissent to ask these questions and offer embodied research as a vital mode of research that brings experiences of marginalized women to light.

About the award
This prestigious award has been established to acknowledge and honor the scholarly accomplishments of distinguished women faculty at the University of Minnesota and to offer a forum for them to share their insights and ideas with a campus and community audience. One scholar from the sciences or engineering and one scholar from the humanities, arts, or social sciences will be selected to present a lecture on alternating years. Learn more here.

To request a disability-related accommodation (please allow two weeks advance notice), contact the Women’s Center at women@umn.edu or 612-625-9837.
