Gray, Judith A., Ed.
This publication reflects the growth of doctoral level research in dance and dance-related areas, and is comprised of approximately 550 doctoral dissertation abstracts. A preface describes how information was gathered: gives information on data descriptions and entries and dissertation ordering; and provides an analysis of the data according to the possibilities of the database on which this volume is founded. That database allows researchers to experiment with different ways to organize information. By activating the database, it is possible to analyze data by a number of research questions and issues relating to the following perspectives: (1) historical; (2) institutional; (3) stylistic; (4) theoretical; (5) educational; and (6) ethnographic. The abstracts are organized by the following categories: administration; biography; children; choreography and performance; education; ethnology and anthropology; history; music and rhythm; notation and movement analysis; psychology and therapy; related arts (literature, opera, painting, theatre, visual); science; styles (ballet, jazz, modern, social, square, tap); technology and film; and theory and philosophy. The entries are also indexed by author and by dissertation title. (LL)
