The Cassiopeia score and other matters; power, pedagogy, and the imparting of knowledge (Sept 2018)

This month's Editorial reflects on the current political climate in an attempt to contextualise the heart of this Editorial, which is a discussion on power, pedagogy, and the imparting of knowledge had by Defne Erdur, Nicolas Hubert, and pavleheidler following their experiences of participating at the MTD Residency earlier this summer.

With this Editorial, team IDOCDE wishes you everything you need to manage your seasonal transition into the new academic year!

pavleheidler for Team IDOCDE



With the IDOCDE Editorials we wish to bring you the most recent updates and news from across Europe on a monthly basis. Writers of the Editorials are MINDTHEDANCE researchers coming from IDOCDE's partner-institutions and Team IDOCDE aka Staff Members. Each month a different person takes the initiative to write about the state of their research, most recent ongoings in their homelands relating to any topic that might influence the life of a dancer. These might include updates regarding the socio-economic, or political climate, institutional or freelance opportunities or the lack thereof, etc. We hope you'll find your way to the IDOCDE Editorial.
