Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Local to global patterns: From bedtime to transit
by Sperry, Christen M., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 8; 1466154
Abstract (Summary)

In my research, I have observed ways in which globalization affects personal ritual, and the transference of people and information. Bed-Tuck Project is a local study of the practice and memory of bedtime, which revealed that popular culture and social structure helped shape the bedtime routines of my interviewees. Transnational travel, daily transit, human trafficking, and the Internet and exemplify the interconnectedness of the world through globalization, and create unique movement patterns. In collaboration with dance choreographer Sara Pfeifle and set-designer Chelsea Maltese, In Transit II (Video 2) examined various pathways of the transfer of people and information through dance.
