Description

Edited by Susan Leigh Foster, former College at Brockport faculty member.

What world has been constructed for dancing through the use of the term 'world dance'? What kinds of worlds do we as scholars create for a given dance when we undertake to describe & analyze it? This book endeavours to make new epistemological space for the analysis of the world's dance by offering a variety of new approaches.
