Are you a pioneering dance scholar and Fulbrighter?
Share your talents with our community at this conference by applying to be our 2015 Cohen Lecturer

The Selma Jeanne Cohen Fund for International Scholarship on Dance enables a dance scholar to present a major paper on previously unpublished research at our 2015 Annual Conference attended by prominent Fulbrighters, public officials and education and foreign affairs leaders. The Selma Jeanne Cohen Fund provides an honorarium and round-trip travel funds for a dance scholar to give a presentation on dance scholarship at the conference. Our 2015 Lecturer will be selected based on guidelines developed by the late Dr. Cohen whose generous endowment gift supports this program.

The Selma Jeanne Cohen Fund honors the pioneering contributions of dance historian Selma Jeanne Cohen. The Fulbright Association created the fund with a generous gift from Dr. Cohen in 2000 to recognize the importance of her Fulbright experience in Russia and to perpetuate her interests in dance as an international enterprise. Dr. Cohen was an historian, editor and teacher who devoted her career to proving dance as an art worthy of the same respect given to painting, music and literature. She was America’s leading figure in dance scholarship and edited the International Encyclopedia of Dance. Dr. Cohen served as a dance critic for The New York Times and The Saturday Review, wrote and edited several books and taught at the University of Chicago.
