. . . I have used essays from the book to help dance graduate students push their thinking beyond the studio and their own physical experience and to realize the varied resources, approaches, and theoretical positions possible in writing about the body. --Dance Research Journal

Choreographing History . . . assembles an impressive diversity of sites, disciplines and critical approaches . . . [and] includes not only historical bodies and discourses, but also the very bodies of the historians themselves. --Parachute

This volume is not only full of gems (the very lineup of preeminent scholars is impressive), but is also a neat cross-section of the academic conventions and mannerisms of our time. --Dance Chronicle

. . . [an] important step. . . in the ineluctable dance by postmodern historians across a bridge that spans the gaps among disciplines, between theory and practice, and betweeen present and past. --Theatre Journal

Historians of science, sexuality, the arts, and history itself focus on the body, merging the project of writing about the body with theoretical concerns in the writing of history.
