Carrie Preston is an associate professor of English and director of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Boston University. Her first book, Modernism’s Mythic Pose: Gender, Genre, Solo Performance (2011) was awarded the de la Torre Bueno Award for dance studies. Learning to Kneel: Noh, Modernism, and Journeys in Teaching, recently released by Columbia University Press, focuses on the international circulation of W. B. Yeats' At the Hawk’s Well (1916) to examine the influence of noh drama on modernist theater, poetry, and dance. Her research for the project was supported by a grant from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the Peter Paul Career Development Professorship, which enabled her to study noh dramaturgy and performance technique in Tokyo.
