Abstract

Welcome to the ninth special issue of Research in Dance Education. This special issue presents original research on Intersectionality and Identities in Dance. I am grateful to 5 associate editor Doug Risner for all his work in developing this special issue and to the authors and peer-reviewers. Peer reviewers offer their expertise and time in a voluntary capacity. This issue is timely and we are sure it will offer challenge and stimulate deep thought and response. We would normally present an article as the winner of the New Writer’s Prize as part of the annual special issue. The New Writer’s Prize was developed 10 as a legacy to the founding editor Linda Rolfe as an open competition for previously unpublished authors. We have decided to broaden the reach and potential of the New Writer’s Prize and are now able to invite submissions across all issues within the year, including the annual special issue. The collection of submissions for the New Writer’s Prize will be considered by the board and the winner will be announced annually.

Theme-based special issues aim to inform, improve and enhance the quality and provision of dance education through lively inquiry and critical debate in order to fulfil the journal’s mission to nurture, stimulate and promote research in dance education around the globe. The journal sets out to include contributors from a wide and diverse community of researchers and scholars, extending to all aspects of dance in education 20 and its research.

Since the journal’s inception, special issues have examined myriad topical themes including technology and dance (2008), creativity in dance (2009), best practice in dance making (2011), the life and legacy of Linda Rolfe, founding editor (2012), practising research in dance (2015), dance pedagogy in theory and practice (2016), dance futures 25 (2017) and dance and work (2019). Interested readers may access all special issue content in the journal archives on the Research in Dance Education website. We are also excited that, by invitation from Routledge, the dance and work special issue has been developed into a book: Dance, Professional Practice, and the Workplace (Pickard and Risner, 2020), the full reference can be found at the end of the editorial.
