Hutchinson Presents Papers at D.C. Conferences
SALISBURY, MD -- -Dr. Victoria Hutchinson, associate professor of education and director of the Dance Program at Salisbury State University, recently presented papers at two Washington, D.C., conferences.
At the Education Technology 2000 Conference sponsored by the Society for Applied Learning Technology, she presented her paper, "Dance Appreciation: Enhancing the Traditional Classroom with Technology," which reported on the progress of an SSU faculty mentor project and demonstrated applications of video and Web-based technology during the "Fine Arts and Humanities" panel.
Hutchinson presented the paper, "Cultural Tension and Collision: The Eastern Cherokee Booger Dance," at the Dancing in the Millennium International Conference that promoted collaboration among dance archivists, choreographers, critics, dancers, educators, ethnographers, historians, movement analysts, notators, performers, physicians, researchers, scholars, therapists and others. Her presentation, examined through the notions of philosophical otherness and the sacred clown, showed how this masked ceremonial captured the tension of 17th and 18th century collisions between Native-, African- and European-based cultures.
