Performing Arts Department Colloquium 2020-2021
Noémie Ndiaye traces the development and circulation of a particularly vivid kinetic idiom of blackness across the porous borders of early modern Europe. Paying particular attention to the expression of "black dances" in Spanish and English performance cultures, she explores the ambivalent economy of interracial power relations in which those dances participated and intervened.
Noémie Ndiaye, is an assistant professor of English at the University of Chicago. She works on representations of race and gender in early modern English, French and Spanish theatre and performance culture. She has published articles in peer-reviewed journals (including Renaissance Drama, Early Theatre, English Literary Renaissance and Literature Compass) and various edited collections.
