Sarah C Town
Lecturing Fellow of Thompson Writing Program

I am an interdisciplinary music/ dance scholar with a research focus on the histories, aesthetics, and circulation of Cuban popular dance culture. My Writing 101 courses at Duke include La gozadera: Music/Dance/Emotion and Writing Through Dialogue and Improvisation. My current writing projects address dialogue and interaction in contemporary Cuban jazz; music, dance, and social spaces in the circulation of timba culture; and the aesthetics and possibilities of Afro-Cuban dance techniques. Alongside my scholarship, I teach and perform Cuban popular music and social dance, and Brazilian capoeira.
