The 2024 Dance Studies Association meeting in Buenos Aires will be our organization’s first major gathering outside of North America and Europe. This occasion aims to facilitate new routes and roots of local and international exchange and dialogic (un)learning in the field of dance studies. At the same time, it beckons us to engage critically with the violences embedded in practices and narratives of expansion and mapping.

NOTE: This is an in-person event.  If you are proposing a group submission, you will be able to Zoom in your co-presenters from onsite.  But DSA will not be able to provide full hybrid conferencing infrastructures, as we will be focusing on translation logistics onsite.
