HANNAH SCHWADRON

Hannah Schwadron is a dancer and researcher whose interests in dance studies entangle critical theory and performance practice. Her book manuscript, The Case of the Sexy Jewess: Dance, Gender and Jewish Joke-work in US Pop Culture analyzes the intersections of dance and performance studies, gender and sexuality studies, and Jewish studies in the context of 20th and 21st c. assimilatory America. The study investigates the dancing humor of sexy ruse in performances by Jewish women across burlesque and cabaret, comedy and porn, spoof magazines and mainstream film.  

Hannah is currently Assistant Professor of Dance History at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida, where she teaches critical theory, dance history & choreography.
