Dear all
I contributed to the discussion on 'deceleration' in 2011 and have been
doing a bit of 'lurking' since then!
I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank everyone and also to draw
your attention to a Ning website I manage that focusses on arts/science
interactions, http://watchingdance.ning.com/.
The membership is global and I'm keen to make sure it stays up to date with
events, calls for papers etc in the arts/science field, especially but not
exclusively concerning the performing arts and dance.
Thanks again

Research Journal*. From 2008-2011 she was Principal Investigator of
‘Watching Dance: Kinesthetic Empathy’, a collaborative, interdisciplinary
project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. This project
maintains a legacy website (www.watchingdance.org) and led to an
interactive site focussing on arts/science interactions (
http://watchingdance.ning.com) with members from 33 countries across 5
continents. The project also led to the setting up of Manchester Dance
Consortium, of which Dee Reynolds is a founding member (
