The doctorate is done and dusted and I shall officially graduate from the Ohio State University tomorrow.

I defended my dissertation on 21st November 2019, and turned in the final  document on 26th November.  It’s called: “Argentine Tango in Cincinnati: An Ethnographic Study of Ethos, Affect, Gender, and Ageing in a Midwestern Dance Community”.  A huge thanks to my amazing advisor, Amy Shuman, and to my committee – Katherine Borland, Ana Cara, and Dorothy Noyes – and to the tango dancers of Cincinnati without whose generosity, insights, and involvement, my research would have been possible.
