This book takes its point of departure from the overwhelming interest in theories of the body and performativity in sociology and cultural studies in recent years. It explores a variety of ways of looking at dance as a social and artistic (bodily) practice as a means of generating insights into the politics of identity and difference as they are situated and traced through representations of the body and bodily practices. These issues are addressed through a series of case studies.(1998b) a#39;a€œDone into Dance: Isadora Duncan in Americaa€ by Ann Dalya#39;, Body aamp; Society, 4, 3, pp. 115a€“18. a€”a€” (1997) a#39;Dancing: ... for a Critical Sociology of Dancea#39;, PhD dissertation, The University of London.
