Yleisöluento: Sue Stinson
In her transition from a long professional career in dance education and research to an unknown future, Sue Stinson questions, “How do we create what we will become out of what we have been?” She finds that the significant life roles in her past have not so much been abandoned but rather transformed into the person she is becoming in the next phase of her life. In this presentation, she shares reflections on how her life in dance became part of her teaching, how both became incorporated into her understanding of research, and how all are related to the larger project of living.
