Dasha A. Chapman is a scholar, dancer, and community connector. She received her B.A. in Latin American Studies and Cultural Studies from the University Professor Program at Boston University, her M.A. in Interdisciplinary Humanities and Social Thought from New York University, and completed her Ph.D. in Performance Studies from New York University in 2015. Previously, she was the postdoctoral associate in the Department of African and African American Studies at Duke University, working alongside Duke’s Haiti Lab, the Program in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies, and Dance.

As visiting assistant professor of Critical Dance Studies at Hampshire College and The Five College Dance Department, Dr. Chapman will teach courses that blur the boundaries between the studio and the seminar room, practice, and theory. Her research and teaching in critical dance studies engage performance studies, ethnography, African diaspora theory, black feminism, and the queer Caribbean.
