Dance Research Journal, August 2019


Volume 51, Issue 2

Editor: Helen Thomas

The articles in this issue have a strong historical theme, which may also be seen to advance a revisionist analysis (Keilson, Snow, Mollehauer, Oriol, and to some extent Huschka). As is increasingly common in current dance scholarship, political considerations are never very far away from these discussions.
