Research: Dance and the Public Sphere

As part of my dedication to dance and its social implications, I use academic writing to explore the connection between urban space, body, and movement. I am now a Ph.D. student in the Program in Cultural Studies at Hebrew University Jerusalem. My research explores how dance correlates with gender and protest and raises issues about mobility in the public sphere: What is public space? Who is entitled to move freely in it? To whom do movement restrictions apply? How do performance, dance, and protest work as a political agency?
