About Dunham’s Data:

Digital Methods for Dance Historical Inquiry is funded by the United Kingdom Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC AH/R012989/1, 2018-2022) and led by Kate Elswit (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London) and Harmony Bench (The Ohio State University). The project explores questions and problems that make the analysis and visualization of data meaningful for dance history through the case study of choreographer Katherine Dunham and is part of a larger suite of ongoing digital collaborations by Bench and Elswit, Movement on the Move. The Dunham’s Data team includes digital humanities postdoctoral research assistant Antonio Jiménez-Mavillard and dance history postdoctoral research assistants Takiyah Nur Amin and Tia-Monique Uzor.
