PhD candidate in American studies
Caroline Granger is a Ph.D. student in American Studies at the University of Caen Normandy where she defends a transdisciplinary approach that intertwines human movement and its environment. Her dissertation “Torsions” focuses on American dance in the twentieth century and more especially on Merce Cunningham’s works. In 2019, she received a travel grant for on-site research in New York from the Institut des Amériques to observe the relationships between human beings and their milieu through interviews of dancers and choreographers. This hands-on process, beyond words and pictures, leads her to attend many workshops and participate in artistic projects.
