Contract Faculty, Dance
Dr. Bridget Cauthery is a dance and cultural studies scholar focusing on the impact of post/neo-coloniality and the processes of globalization on contemporary and popular dance practices in the Global North. In 2016 she was the recipient of a twelve-month research leave to complete the manuscript for her forthcoming book Choreographing the North (McGill-Queens University Press) that examines eleven contemporary dance works from the northern and southern hemispheres that take the North as their source and inspiration. In 2015 Bridget received Academic Innovation funding for a new blended learning course that uses social media to manufacture undergraduate student engagement in critical theory. In 2014 Bridget won the inaugural AMPD eLearning Teaching Award for her course Dance, Film & Culture. Since 2008 she has been lecturing in the Dance Department at York University and in the Theatre School at Ryerson University and was appointed to York’s Faculty of Graduate Studies in 2014.
