Futures of Dance Studies (Studies in Dance History) (Hardcover)
A collaboration between well-established and rising scholars, Futures of Dance Studies suggests multiple directions for new research in the field. Essays address dance in a wider range of contexts—onstage, on screen, in the studio, and on the street—and deploy methods from diverse disciplines. Engaging African American and African diasporic studies, Latinx and Latin American studies, gender and sexuality studies, and Asian American and Asian studies, this anthology demonstrates the relevance of dance analysis to adjacent fields.

“[A] dynamic anthology. . . . An energizing read that belongs in any personal or professional library. This anthology is an inspired call for further inclusion, innovation, and collaboration in the act of writing about dance.”—Journal of Dance Education
