New Dance Studies/New German Cultural Studies

(p.1) Introduction
New German Dance Studies

Susan Manning

Lucia Ruprecht

University of Illinois Press

This introductory chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to offer fresh histories and theoretical inquiries that will resonate not only for scholars working in the field of dance, but also for scholars working on literature, film, visual culture, theater, and performance. It then sketches the intellectual and artistic trends over the last thirty years that have shaped the scholarship featured in New German Dance Studies. It follows the broadly chronological organization of the volume as a whole: opening essays on theater dance before 1900; then research clusters on Weimar dance, dance in the German Democratic Republic, and conceptual dance; and a closing reflection on the circulation of dance in an era of globalization. Throughout it emphasizes the complex interplay between dance-making and dance writing, as well as interrelations between dance practice and research and artistic and intellectual trends in German culture at large.

Keywords:   New German Dance Studies, theater dance, Weimar dance, conceptual dance, dance-making, dance writing, German culture
