Dance scholarship is in the midst of explosive growth today, due in part to the current interest in the body, gender, and in performance studies in general, as well as to dancers and choreographers whose innovative work is reinvigorating the performance-going publics interest in dance. Now Moving Words offers students, scholars, and critics of dance and performance the latest word on the debates swirling within the world of dance. Contributors confront basic questions of definition and interpretation within dance studies, while at the same time examing broader issues, such as the body, gender, class, race, nationalism, and cross-cultural exchange. Specific essays address such topics as the black male body in dance, gender and subversions in the dances of Mark Morris, race and nationalism in Martha Grahams American Document, and the history of Asian dance.
