Summary:Futures of Dance Studies is an outrageously arrogant title. Yet this anthology of essays by 28 early-career scholars demonstrates the vitality and dynamism of dance studies, a field that for several decades seemed always emergent and finally has arrived. The authors are dancers, historians, ethnographers, theorists, and activists. Their topics range broadly across time and space, and their methods are equally capacious. Their writing is rigorous yet passionate, and together they articulate why dance matters to inquiries across the arts and humanities.
