Dear All:
There will be no lunchbag meeting this week, Friday January 25.

Please send any announcements you may have to Alycia Kunkle ak194712 at ohio.edu before Friday at 1pm.

Please be sure to attend and encourage your students to attend next week's Friday Lunchbag February 1, Noon-12:45. Our guest will be Dr. Clare Croft
Clare Croft is a scholar in the fields of dance studies and performance studies with interests in the intersections of dance and cultural policy, 20th and 21st century American performance, feminist and queer theory, dramaturgy and critical race theory. She is currently at work on a book project titled Funding Footprints: US State Department Sponsorship of International Dance Tours. Her writing has been published in the academic journals Theatre Topics and Theatre Journal and in newspapers and magazines, including The Washington Post, The Austin American-Statesman, The Baltimore Sun, and Dance Magazine, among others. In 2010, Croft's article, “Ballet Nations: The New York City Ballet’s 1962 US State Department-Sponsored Tour of the Soviet Union,” received the American Society of Theatre Research’s Biennial Sally Banes Publication Prize, which recognizes the publication that best explores the intersections of theatre and dance/movement. Croft received her Ph.D. in Performance as Public Practice from the University of Texas-Austin and an M.A. in Performance Studies from NYU. Croft is a former employee of the dance and media programs at the National Endowment for the Arts. She is also an active dramaturg and has recently collaborated on creative projects with choreographers Rachel Murray and Andee Scott.
