Dunham's Data

Two Postdoctoral Job Openings with the Dunham’s Data Research Project

We are seeking two dynamic postdoctoral research assistants, one in Digital Humanities and one in Dance History, to join our research team for Dunham’s Data: Katherine Dunham and Digital Methods for Dance Historical Inquiry.

Dunham’s Data is a three-year project (2018-2021) funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), under the direction of Kate Elswit (PI, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London) and Harmony Bench (CI, The Ohio State University). Through this project, we explore the kinds of questions and problems that make data analysis and visualization meaningful for dance historical inquiry. To do so, we are investigating how dance moves both across geographical locations and across networks of cultural, artistic, and financial capital through the case study of Katherine Dunham. The core project team is joined by UK industry partners One Dance UK’s Dance of the African Diaspora and the Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as international knowledge exchange partnerships with digital projects at Ludwig Maximilians Universität Munich (Germany) and the University of New South Wales (Australia). For more information on the project see:
