    I am a cultural historian and performance theorist, trained in comparative literature and theory. My three books focus on the history of dance performance, and the medical, industrial and political thinking about bodies--especially female-- that mark modernity. Published works include Dance Pathologies; Performance, Poetics, Medicine (1998); Dancing Machines: Choreographies of the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (2003) both from Stanford University Press; and French Moves; The Cultural Politics of le hip hop (Oxford University Press, 2013), winner of the De la Torre Bueno Prize (awarded by the SDHS) and Outstanding Publication of the Year (awarded by CORD) in 2014. Other publications focus on performance history and theory, visual culture and theory of the image (including cinema), history of technology, Morocco and islam in Europe. For research in this last field, I received an NEH Summer Stipend in 2011 for research at the CCM (Centre Cinematographique Marocain) in Rabat, and Lurcy Grants for research at the CNC (Centre National de Cinema) in Paris.
