About this book


This international collection on dance ethnography - the first of its kind - comprises original contributions on fieldwork in dance and human movement. Based on extensive fieldwork experience, it explores the major theoretical approaches, methods and concerns of dance and movement research from anthropological and ethnochoreological perspectives. The result underlines the existing and continuing growth in dance ethnography which will also be of interest to those in dance studies, anthropology, cultural studies, folklore, ethnomusicology and sociology.
