    Abstract:
      Tracing the artistic, political, and significatory impulses in the work of influential and incisive choreographer and dancer Bill T. Jones over the past 20 years, these articles investigate the multivalent impact of Jones's life and art on audiences and critics. Through his performances and his own words, Jones continues making work that is, as Barbara Browning writes, "inevitably personal and political, difficult, and engaged with the world."

  • "I wyll be thy true servaunte / And trewely serve thee": Guildhall Minstrelsy in the Gest of Robyn Hode
    [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Lytell geste of Robyn Hode.
    • Minstrels -- England -- History -- To 1500.
    • Performing arts -- England -- History -- To 1500.
    Abstract:
      Although the Gest of Robyn Hode is familiar as the earliest-known verse life of the medieval English outlaw, virtually no scholars have offered detailed conjecture about the manner of its earliest performance. Offering an analysis of the potential of the aged text as performed narrative, Hoffman traces the tale back to a satirical reproduction as an example of confraternity and sophisticated levels of stylization of "semi-dramatic minstrel 'talking.'"

    • Romanies -- Social life and customs.
    • Pilgrims and pilgrimages -- France -- Saintes-Maries.
    • Heritage tourism -- France -- Saintes-Maries.
    Abstract:
      Every May some ten thousand Romanies (aka Gypsies) perform a pilgrimage to Les Saintes-Maries-de-le-Mer, a remote fishing village in the south of France. Their annual gathering has developed into a popular festival of Romani culture that spawns its own pilgrimage of tourists and journalists—as well as some tension between the townspeople and the Romani.
