Emily A. Hawk

Emily Hawk is a Ph.D. student in the Department of History. Her research centers on 20th century American dance and cultural history. She is particularly interested in how choreographers and audiences address and interpret American national identity, and how dance practice and performance more broadly reflect sociocultural attitudes and phenomena. Emily earned her M.A., with distinction, in dance history from the University of Roehampton in London, U.K., and her B.A., summa cum laude, in dance and history from Franklin & Marshall College.
