Course Introduction

Interrogate and debate to develop your critical thinking on dance practices and issues from philosophical and historical perspectives. Recognising the renewed interest in historical and philosophical enquiry by current dance scholarship, performance and practice, this programme helps emerging and experienced dance practitioners and scholars locate their work effectively within philosophical and historical approaches for the advanced study of dance. The programme incorporates Anglo'American Analytic as well as Continental schools of Philosophy; and Realist'Empiricist as well as Poststructuralist approaches to History. Through this course, you will gain an in'depth understanding of dance as a philosophical and historical construct, and develop a sophisticated and knowledgeable approach to dance analysis thinking and praxis.
