TURNING Ph.D DISSERTATIONS OF PEOPLE I KNOW INTO DANCES. I have a number of friends and relatives with Ph.D’s, and I wonder what dances they would make out of their dissertations. Of course, the competitions apparently have come into existence only recently, and they focus on the sciences. (Sponsors of the competitions are Science magazine and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.)
But what dance would Mary Jane have made out of her dissertation in Victorian literature?
