I began this blog during a sabbatical in 2009 and continued to write when I returned to teaching at the University of Brighton in January 2010. I discovered that blogging is useful to reflect on process and the site turns over time into a valuable archive.

The blog tracks activities of the International Screendance Network and developments of the new International Journal of Screendance. It also functions as a reflective space on current events and dialogues in the fields dance, performance and live art.

For further information on my work go to www.ckappenberg.info

The International Screendance Network now has its own blog at http://screendance.wordpress.com/

Information of further activities of the Network and its Journal can be found at http://arts.brighton.ac.uk/projects/screendance You can email me

Broadsides

How Ordinary Scots inBygone Days Found out what was Happening

In the centuries before there were newspapers and 24-hour news channels, the general public had to rely on street literature to find out what was going on. The most popular form of this for nearly 300 years was ‘broadsides’ - the tabloids of their day. Sometimes pinned up on walls in houses and ale-houses, these single sheets carried public notices, news, speeches and songs that could be read (or sung) aloud. (to read more go to the The National Library of Scotland's online collection of nearly 1,800 broadsides)

I just made my own, to publicise the Universal Declaration of the Human Right to Uselessness. It will be pinned to the walls of the dlwp this Saturday, 5th July. see Dear Serge
