For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Alice Rogers, and I am the outgoing secretary/treasurer of the SEM Student Union. I have been involved with the SEM Student Union for four years, starting when I attended my first national conference in New Orleans. Every year, I can’t help but get excited for the conference; I get to meet new people, learn about new trends and topics in ethnomusicology, and discuss important issues for our Society. Though I am still relatively new to the world of conference-going, I thought I would make a list of tips for first-time attendees.
This week, Liza, Ana, and I are very pleased to introduce Diana Gutiérrez. While pursuing a master’s degree in “Choreomundus: International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage,” Diana created a short video that summarizes her experiences of parenthood and dance education for children.
