DANC 4550 - Dance Ethnography: Intellectualizing the Body’s Motion


Surveys a wide range of theoretical approaches to the study of dance from an ethnological perspective: dance as a system of communication, social structure, ethnicity, and sacred art. Methodologies used are developed in the fields of symbolic anthropology, social, history, ethnochoreology, ethnomusicology, comparative religious, and performance studies. Gathering ethnographic material, ethical dynamics of fieldwork encounters, and duties of the dance ethnographer as a cultural mediator are explored.
