Dance Research: The Journal of the Society for Dance Research

Richard Ralph


The text offers a conspectus of the work of Professor McGowan and, in particular, focuses on French culture in the 16th and 17th centuries; the development of the study of dance in this early period and of the appropriate theoretical and historical approaches needed to bring court culture and choreographies of the baroque to the critical attention of modern scholars.

Keywords: Margaret M. McGowan – pioneer, Dance in the Renaissance, Court Culture
