(Re)Searching the field
Festschrift in Honour of Egil Bakka

Anne Margrete Fiskvik & Marit Stranden (Eds.)

The Norwegian ethnochoreologist and educator Egil Bakka has been crucial in establishing dance research as an academic discipline in Norway. As a scholar of international format, he has established dance networks worldwide.

Through his long and active career, Egil Bakka has researched both Norwegian and international dance fields. He has been crucial for the documentation and analysis of Norwegian folkdance. His involvement in local communities and more recently with UNESCO in connection with safeguarding intangible cultural heritage, has led to heightened awareness of the rich tradition of dance worldwide.

Egil Bakka has always shared his expertise generously. The articles in this Festschrift honour this generosity, as the volume contains 30 peer-reviewed articles written by Bakka’s close colleagues. The contributors repre­sent Norway and Nordic countries, as well as countries in Europe, America, and Asia, and the breadth and scope of this Festschrift takes the reader through a variety of topics related to dance and music.”
