Where Have All the Scholars Gone...Long Time Passing...
Brennan, Mary Alice
Unlike other fields, especially non-arts areas, dance students do not decide to be scholars early in their dance studies. They enter undergraduate and then graduate study because they want to dance and they later awaken to the fact that if they want to continue in the profession they will probably have to teach. The prospect of scholarship often does not enter the picture. And one reason is the lack of role models. A dance student going on to graduate work encounters few faculty who are actively engaging in scholarly work. Our graduate institutions are not really producing scholars to the extent that they should, given the growth of dance in recent years, and when there is an individual with potential for making a contribution, the positions available do not build in time and support for research. Several charts are included. (JD)
