Transpositions

 This section features foreign-language articles, selected for their quality and contribution to EDMC scholarship, in translation into English. While it is currently beyond the logistical capacities of Dancecultto provide peer-reviewing, editing, and the publication of articles in multiple foreign languages, this new translation project promises to introduce prominent and ground-breaking foreign-language EDMC scholarship to a wider readership, while also increasing the international exposure of non-Anglophone scholars. The articles to be translated for this section are usually selected by the Foreign Languages Editor (FLE), in consultation with the Executive Editor; nonetheless, the FLE will gladly accept suggestions of articles to consider for translation. 
Contact the FLE by email.

From the Floor

Our "From The Floor" section hosts imaginative submissions reviewed by Dancecult editors (that is, submissions are not typically subject to blind peer-review). Submissions include field reports, mini-ethnographies, photo-essays and interviews. Pieces for this section should be between 750-2500 words in length. Rather than written in the style of an article with formal analysis and many citations, FTF pieces are more conversational or blog-like in style, and may consist of experimental and creative reportage styles across the field of EDM. They may include substantive multimedia components.
