Postgraduate course launched, USA

The University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Art offers an interdisciplinary graduate degree in which the student may create a unique curriculum and program of study that supports their particular area of practice or research. To that end, in 2010, Professor Douglas Rosenberg will begin working with a limited number of graduate students in the area of Screendance. Students will have access to a diverse and accomplished faculty, working across disciplines including performance, video, installation and digital media. Additionally, they will have access to the UW Madison Dance Department and its faculty, including choreographer Li Chiao-Ping, theorist and historian Dr Andrea Harris and others.

The practice of Screendance will be situated within a larger context of the visual arts and will include theoretical components, historical analysis, critical writing, creative practice and studio based production in screen performance.

The UW Madison has held a number of significant conferences and symposia on Screendance and will be the home of the forthcoming International Journal of Screendance.
