Proposing Values-based Models for Peer Review in Dance Studies Publishing (facilitator: Rachel Carrico)

Multiple voices across academia are addressing the crisis of peer review in academic publishing. The process, on which academic publishing depends, has long relied on the goodwill of scholars, frequently demanding racially gendered labor. Despite its structural problems, when undertaken with care and generosity, peer review can be deeply meaningful and transformative for authors, reviewers, the work and the field. Indeed, some journals have adopted alternative systems of review, and experts have suggested ways to overhaul the peer review process. This webinar invites any and all invested in publishing in the field of Dance Studies to engage in a conversation across multiple perspectives - editor, author, and reader - regarding current peer review practices in our field, how we might best work inside of them, and to envision radical shifts. What procedures and values do we need in the field of Dance Studies to make this peer process work for us and the development of our work? Where can we go from here? How do we as a field think about this process as a way of advancing our values and knowledge production in Dance Studies? How can we make this process work for us? How can we dream together about how to best work inside and change existing models and envision radical shifts for our future?
