A Conversation with Dr. Toni Shapiro-Phim

August 11, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Moore Hall, Room 319

How can dance inform social justice efforts? Join us for an intimate conversation with Dr. Toni Shapiro-Phim, whose research centers on dance in relation to the telling of stories, the remembering of atrocities, the embodiment of the pain and cruelty of others, and the imagining of possibilities. Shapiro-Phim's research focuses on, among other things, how performing arts can contribute to social justice, and how dancers and performers push boundaries beyond the confines of historical documentation, paying attention to artistic techniques, emotions, and subjectivity. We invite Southeast Asia enthusiasts and graduate students from social science, humanities, and performing arts who want to learn more about Dr. Shapiro-Phim’s work, as well as about researching social justice through performing arts. Seats are limited. R.S.V.P is required. First come first served.
