ASNC Keynote: Kim Jones, Associate Professor of Dance at UNC Charlotte

April 29, 2023 @ 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm

Please join us for a Keynote speech by Professor Kim Jones, Associate Professor of Dance at UNC Charlotte.

Jones will present her newest research project: an investigation into the choreography of Korean dancer/choreographer Choi Seung-Hee (1911-69). Widely regarded as Korea’s first modern dancer, Choi lived an eventful life through the Japanese occupation of Korea and the Korean War. Jones began her study of Choi in 2019 and in June 2022 presented a work inspired by Choi at the DAP Festival in Italy. In July 2022 she joined a cohort of 25 higher education faculty in Chicago for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Institute: Making Modernism: Literature, Dance, and Visual Culture in Chicago, 1893-1955, where she continued her research.

This event is eligible for CLE credit.
