Rachmi Diyah Larasati, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2009
Rachmi Diyah Larasati (Theatre Arts and Dance, College of Liberal Arts): “Global Corporeality in Post Conflict/War Zone”
Larasati used weekly discussions with the fellows to develop methodology for her research on global corporeality in post conflict/war zones. During her fellowship she produced three articles, one of which has already been published: “From the Palace to Modern State: Women and Performing Arts” [Lingkaran Tubuh Tari: Ritme dan Kekuasaan] in Jurnal Perempuan: the Journal of Women in Indonesia (no. 62, 2009); another has been accepted for publication. She wrote a book review which was closely related to her work within the fellowship: “Reading Body Politics through Communities of Technique in Judith Hamera‘s Dancing Communities,” in Theatre Survey (Fall 2009). She also wrote a book prospectus and submitted it to two publishers. She successfully applied for an International Collaborative Work Grant from the Asian Scholarship Foundation, as well as a Grant-in-Aid of Research, Artistry, and Scholarship and an Imagine Fund award, both from the University of Minnesota.
