Kate Spanos – Dance, Research, Web

ResearchI earned my PhD in Dance and Performance Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. My research interests include “dances of resistance,” cultural identity formation, national performance (music and dance), and Irish, African, Brazilian, and Caribbean studies (especially when these cultures intersect in various ways).
