The Modern Moves team has been very busy during the first week of November, presenting at, convening panels for, and attending three different conferences. From the 6th-9th November, Madison Moore and Ananya Kabir were at a panel on ‘Music, Fashion, and the Power of (Queer) Nightlife’ at ‘The Fun and the Fury: New Dialectics of Pleasure and Pain In the Post-American Century’: the Annual American Studies Association meeting in Los Angeles.
During those same dates, Leyneuf Tines and our visiting Researcher Livia Jimenez Sedano were representing Modern Moves at the annual ADAD conference Re:Generations 2014, at Bournemouth.
And earlier in the week, Elina Djebbari was in Paris, co-convening a workshop entitled ‘Les enjeux de l’ethnographie dans l’étude des pratiques artistiques’ at the Premières Rencontres Annuelles d’Ethnographie de l’EHESS.
All this simultaneous travelling meant some hectic long-distance and cross-time zones communication for our first Moving Conversation later this week, but we are definitely all set for this stellar event!
