The CWAH Annual Dance and Philosophy Lecture seeks to support continued expansion of dance as both an art practice and an embodied form of creative research that is also embedded in the humanities. This lecture serves students in Rutgers’ MFA Dance degree’s fall semester course, Dance Philosophy and Aesthetics and Creative Process: Improvisation Strategies. The lecture is open to the general public and all students and faculty who wish to engage more fully with dance as an expanded field.

Junctures in Women's Leadership: The Arts

By Judith K. Brodsky and Ferris Olin

The third volume of the Institute for Women's Leadership's Junctures: Case Studies in Women's Leadership profiles female leaders in music, theater, dance, and visual art. The diverse women included have made their mark by serving as executives or founders of art organizations, by working as activists to support the arts, or by challenging stereotypes about women in the arts. Brodsky and Olin have been collaborating on projects to bring recognition to women artists and artists of color for many decades and are the co-founders and first co-directors of the Institute for Women and Art (now known as the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities).
