PhD research in Brazilian Samba de Gafieira

Making a mark on written dance history:

Today Bebe was interviewed by Rachel Pedro (Lecturer in Dance Theory at the Creative Industries Faculty, Queensland University of Technology) as part of her PhD research.

Rachel is currently completing a PhD to demonstrate how globalisation has changed the way in which the Brazilian dance style Samba de Gafieira has been translated in the Australian context since the 1940s. More specificially, her research focuses on the changing politics (ie power relations) of the hybridizing (mixing) process which occurs when a dance style is translated into a new culture.

The PhD results will be published in English, Brazilian Portuguese, and possibly also Spanish in journal articles.
