'Pleasure in Circulation' by Juan Manuel Aldape Muñoz

February 25, 2021

In December 2020, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow/Visiting Lecturer Juan Manuel Aldape Muñoz published an academic journal article in the international dance publication INVESTIGACIONES EN DANZA Y MOVIMIENTO (idym). In “Pleasure in Circulation: Erotic Power on the Migrant Road to Amarillo,” Juan Manuel examines the dance performance Amarillo and migrant experiences beyond the victim-violator binary that scholars and others use to discuss this topic. This piece connects dance, migration, pleasure, and sex in evaluating how migrants experience erotics and desire on their journeys, including the pleasure found in the migration along and through the border.
