The Body, Dance and Cultural Theory

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 17 Jul 2003

This book takes its point of departure from the overwhelming interest in theories of the body and performativity in sociology and cultural studies in recent years. It explores a variety of ways of looking at dance as a social and artistic (bodily) practice as a means of generating insights into the politics of identity and difference as they are situated and traced through representations of the body and bodily practices. These issues are addressed through a series of case studies.
