Doctoral dissertations in interpretative dance

You may not be interested in reading a dissertation titled, ” “Refitting repasts: a spatial exploration of food processing, sharing, cooking and disposal at the Dunefield Midden campsite, South Africa.” But who could resist the chance to see it danced by the author, Brian Stewart, a graduate student of archaeology at Oxford?


Ruth Gruetzbauch of the University of Vienna faced what was arguably a tougher challenge in her thesis: “The eventful life of galaxies in low density environments.”

But she rose to the challenge with the aid of Jesus Varela. To depict the capture of one galaxy by a larger galaxy, they danced a a tango and took second place in the graduate-student division.
