ICTM (International Council for the Study of Traditional Music)
Study Group on Ethnochoreology
Symposium Proceedings 1998–2008
compiled and edited by
Elsie Ivancich Dunin and Laszlo Felföldi
The International Council for the Traditional Music (ICTM) Study Group on Ethnochoreology is the oldest established international organization devoted to the scholarly study of dance in the world. Since 1988 it has met every two years to discuss and publish papers on selected themes. Many of these proceedings have proved seminal to the study of dance and culture, yet often because of the variety of publishing houses and small print runs have become difficult to access beyond the confines of the Study Group.
Here for the first time is made available a collection of all ten symposia proceedings on one DVD. It is an essential acquisition for any university, research library or organization with an interest in dance, culture and the performing arts.
