Julia Ritter to present lecture at 39th annual Fulbright Association conference

Julia Ritter, chair and artistic director of the Dance Department, has been selected to present the 2016 Selma Jeanne Cohen Fund Lecture, based on her research on dance and immersive performance, at the 39th annual Fulbright Association conference in Washington, D.C., from November 10 to 13. The Selma Jeanne Cohen Fund Lecture for International Scholarship on Dance was created through a bequest by the late dance scholar Dr. Selma Jeanne Cohen—a Fulbright scholar in Russia in 1976—to recognize research in dance history and other areas of dance scholarship. The Selma Jeanne Cohen Endowed Fund is administered by the Fulbright Association. Ritter successfully defended her dissertation in October and will graduate with her Ph.D. in dance from Texas Woman's University in December 2016.
