The Choreographic Research Centre/Council of Culture/University of Madeira, in collaboration with the Luso-Brazilian Audiovisual Studies Research Group/Federal University of Minas Gerais, is launching a call for an e-book entitled Corpos que Dançam III (Bodies that Dance III).


This e-book, with a referenced editorial board, includes António Laginha (CLEPUL – Portugal), Carlos Tejo (UVigo – Spain), Carlos Valente (UMa – Portugal), Cláudia Marisa Oliveira (ESMAE – Portugal), Eduarda Neves (ESAP – Portugal), Fernanda Carlos Borges (Escola da Tenda – Brazil), Giselle Ruzany (Gestalt Dance, LPC – USA), Helena Katz (PUC/SP – Brazil), Mônica Medeiros Ribeiro (UFMG – Brazil), Sandra Meyer Nunes (UFSC-Brazil) and Tales Frey (Cia. Excessos – Portugal) will bring together, in a multi-authored book, texts that reflect the countless practices that dance, as an artistic expression, presents. In this edition, we welcome contributions on art and anthropology, research and artistic practice, ethnographic research and movement, the body and narrative, image recordings and bodily expression, as well as performance, audiences and corporeality.


Share your research and reflections and collaborate in promoting a diversity of perspectives and approaches. Submit your article and help us explore the complexities of the moving body at the intersection of art and anthropology.
