Presented by Dunham’s Data: Katherine Dunham and Digital Methods for Dance Historical Inquiry (Harmony Bench, Kate Elswit, Antonio Jimenez-Mavillard, Tia-Monique Uzor)

How do you begin to understand the extent of a particular individual’s global influence on her field? Especially if that influence travels through performance from body to body and place to place in the middle of the twentieth century? You look for data in any and all documents you can get your hands on! That’s what Dunham’s Data did -- they use performance programs, notes written on the backs of envelopes, provisional travel plans, and more to create structured data with which they can better understand the impact of African-American choreographer, teacher, and activist Katherine Dunham. The team behind Dunham’s Data will walk through key datasets and other outcomes from the project, to discuss how this fits into their ongoing research on the questions and problems that make the analysis and visualization of data meaningful for dance historical inquiry. This session will be of interest to those studying the performing arts, but, more broadly, to anyone interesting in thinking about data in new and creative ways!

This webinar is free and open to the public. The recording and slides will be sent to all registrants following the live webinar.
