International Network

PoP Moves is a global network that seeks to connect popular dance scholars regardless of national or linguistic affiliations. We are continually developing our use of online technologies and schemes such as Addressing (Im)mobilities to make this possible. For purposes of organising physical events and face-to-face peer support we have found it useful to cluster into ‘nodes’ organised pragmatically around regional and linguistic affiliations. We happily welcome new nodes as well as envision potential reorganizations as our network grows. If you would like to propose a new node, please contact us via the Contact page.

The map below shows the global spread of PoP Moves committee members and the nodes they are affiliated with. Click on the stars to visit the relevant node pages. (To achieve this functionality we have had to use the Mercator Projection, but recognise the political issues of global North and South representation that this raises)
