Interview with Sherrie Tucker (Media Coverage)
Author(s): Jay Hammond, Karim Wissa
Publication: Full Stop
Date: 4/21/2015
Abstract: For Sherrie Tucker, research is dancing. A leading academic in the Jazz Studies world, she is part of a cohort of scholars working on gender, embodiment, memory, social improvisation, and dis/ability in jazz. Rather than creating a new subfield of inquiry though, these priorities demand new ways of talking about older themes in jazz scholarship such as race, democracy, war, nationalism, and, in Tucker’s recent work, stem from thinking critically with dance.
