Fulbright Scholar Award 2024-25 for Alumna

We are pleased to share that alumna Dr Fusako Innami has been given the Fulbright Scholar Award 2024-25 to conduct book-length research on ‘Gestural Writing: Performance, Topography, Trace’ at UC Berkeley.

An Associate Professor in Japanese and Performance Studies at Durham University, Dr Innami’s Fulbright project concerns performance which by its very nature disappears. How do we recollect live performances that are not available in recordings, but only remain in the form of reviews, scores, pictures, or digitized archives?

Her project gathers traces of dancers’ transcultural movements, contacts, and memoirs. Based in the Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies at UC Berkeley, she will explore new methods of reconstructing past performances.

More details are available on the Fulbright website.
