Anthropology and Sociology Seminar Series : Torres Strait Islander Cultural Dance: Research, ethics and protocols Other events...
Research into Torres Strait Islander cultural dance has traditionally focused on the music and songs of Islanders and rarely on the movements themselves or the cultural protocols of dance. This seminar presents a new Torres Strait Islander perspective on the ethics of research as well as the cultural protocols of eastern Island dance. It is a joint research project with the Gerib Sik Torres Strait Islander Dance Corporation which will result in a co-authored, invited chapter publication in the forthcoming volume Indigenous research ethics: Claiming research sovereignty beyond deficit and the colonial legacy, edited by Dr. Lily George, Dr. Juan Tauri and Dr. Lindsey Te Ata o Tu MacDonald. Specifically, we explore how Islander dance is not only created and practiced within Torres Strait culture but how that information is communicated to researchers. Through this writing, we hope to give life back to Islander dance research by proposing new methods behind research practices while also reinforcing cultural practices.
