I’ve written extensively about race, racism, and ethnicity over the years, both here and in my academic papers and doctorate.
You can read my PhD thesis here:
Hepfidelity: Swing dance and the role of digital media in embodied practice, LaTrobe University, 2006.
Please note that this thesis and its research are now almost twenty years old. The world of feminist and intersectional theory and research has moved on. Some of the things I wrote about then I no longer agree with.
You might be interested in the sections addressing cultural transmission (including cultural appropriate), and dance as public discourse.
