Lucille Toth is an Assistant Professor of French at the Ohio State University-Newark. Trained in contemporary dance, her research interests lie at the intersection of dance, literature, medical humanities and gender studies. Her first book "Le virus et ses mouvements" traces the links between AIDS and dance in France in order to challenge contemporary cultural, political and artistic metaphors about contamination. Her new project "Moving Bodies, Moving Borders" confronts migration and movement with current discourses on purity and identity. In addition to being a scholar, Lucille Toth is also a choreographer, currently working on "On Border(hers)," an all-women dance performance based on testimonies of 15 female immigrants.
