Between Dancing and Writing

Kimerer L. LaMothe

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses why attention to dance as an expression of religion is important for scholars of religion, and what implications such attention may have on the evolution of theory and method. Where the perception of dance as an adversary of religion may have facilitated the formation of the field, the continuing vitality and relevance of the study of religion requires attention to the concept as dance as religion. In this process, dance is both a phenomenon to consider and a resource in the development of theory and methods capable of attending to it. The chapter concludes with an agenda for future projects in the philosophy of religion and dance.
