    1 Citation (Scopus)


    Recent Irish theatre scholarship situates performance and the body as central to discourse and meaning, and Aoife McGrath historicizes the rich but neglected field of Irish dance, contextualizing vibrant contemporary practices and a growing field of research. McGrath argues that the once prohibited, ever-evolving dancing body is a way to fruitfully explore notions of ‘“Irishness”, Irish national identity and cultural memory’.
