The benefits of the orchestral touring life: Noh theatre in Japan, 1992,
not long after fieldwork in Shanxi.
Three monographs on ethnic religion and culture that I haven’t yet seen—or even written:
- On campaigns against popular shamans:
Striking a happy medium.
- On the stagecraft of Japanese drama (Altogether now):
There’s no business like Noh business.
(For a rather more serious treatment, see here.)
- On the well-attested debt of the Western classical tradition (notably British music) to the nuba art music of the Maghreb, with reference to antiquated sexist ideology perpetuated therein:
WAM, BAM, thankyou MAM.
- This one has already been done, but in similar vein is my venture into sociology:
From WAGs to witches: the demonisation of celebrity girlfriends.
