Product Description

Review

"Dr. Dixon Gottschild's voice is convincing because of her eclectic documentation and it is touching as well because of the human experiences the reader is drawn into within the related responses of her students, her colleagues, herself, and her antagonists. She is always clear about specific objectives, leaving tempting tangents, yet incorporating the thinking of scholars and learned others in multiple disciplines--definitely in a creole mode that is rich, colorful, and not easily discounted."- Yvonne Daniel, Associate Professor of Dance Anthropology Smith College and the Five College Dance Consortium

Format: Paperback
Dixon Gottschild contribution to the dance studies field is excellent. She has, almost singlehandedly, paved the way for black dance by describing and offering methods to analyse and critique non-western dance forms, as opposed to the western framing and conceptualisation of dance that dominates academia. Her first class publication "Digging the Africanist Aesthetic..." is a classic, and the chapter giving a template for reading Africanist aesthetic in dance like: the high-affect juxtaposition, aesthetic of the cool, polycentrism etc is a must use tool for any dance student attempting to descibe and analyse black dance.
Her second book from Coon to Cool is also up there with the likes of Thomas De Franz, Albright Cooper and O'Shea.
