Prof. Alexandra Carter

I joined Middlesex University in 1985 and have continued to contribute to under- and post-graduate programmes in Dance and Performing Arts, as well as supervision of research students. My own research degree, awarded by the University of Surrey, was on ballet in the London music halls and I continue to explore the interface between ballet and popular culture. I edited the "Routledge Dance Studies Reader" (1998) and "Rethinking Dance History" (2004) and published the sole authored text "Dance and Dancers in the Victorian" and Edwardian Music Hall Ballet (2005). Have served as a Panel member and now Convenor of the Arts and Humanities Research Panel 7 and on the Editorial Board of Dance Theatre Jurnal.
