Guest Lecture Series Event: In Conversation with Sherril Dodds
The third event in our Guest Lecture Series 21-22 features invited speaker Professor Sherril Dodds (Temple University, Philadelphia). In conversation with Dr Kathrina Farrugia-Kriel, Dodds will speak about her breaking practice, bringing questions of ageing and dance, as well as race, privilege, ethics, and belonging. This event will be of interest to those invested in ageing and dance, as well as practice as research and popular dance forms.
