      Jennifer Monson, who came to Illinois from New York in January to join the U. of I. dance faculty, is a new breed of performance artist whose choreography and dance research are informed by environmental issues. Monson was recruited to the Illinois campus through an innovative, interdisciplinary program initiated by the university's Environmental Council.
