Natalie Zervou

Natalie Zervou, a scholar of the Onassis Foundation, was elected Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Dance Department. The UW-Madison's Dance Department is part of the School of Education which ranked 3rd best School of Education in the USA for 2017. Moreover, the Department has a long history behind it, being the first university-level Dance Department to be founded in the USA (1927). Natalie's responsibilities will involve research and teaching of the following subjects: Dance History, Political and Cultural Perspectives in Dance Studies, and Dancing Gender: Embodiment, Politics, and Feminist Theory.

She completed her PhD in Critical Dance Studies at the University of California, Riverside, under a scholarship of the Onassis Foundation. She defended her dissertation, titled The Greek Body in Crisis: Contemporary Dance as a Site of Negotiating and Restructuring National Identity in the Era of Precarity in June of 2015. Her research interests after that have focused on contemporary dance in Greece, during the recent socio-political and economic crisis, and she has been presenting her work at international dance and theatre conferences.

Natalie also holds an MA in Dance Studies & Cultures from the University of Surrey, following undergraduate Dance studies in Greece at the Morianova Trasta Higher Professional Dance School, as well as a BA in Political Science and International Studies from the University of Athens.
