"Picking Your Topic is Research"

Search Terms

General or Specific Terms for Art Terms for Evolution and Adaptation
Most general art evolution, natural selection, Darwin
General dance well-being, fitness, coping, social, psychological
Specific social dance cognition, creativity, social inclusion/belonging (isolation/loneliness), influence/persuasion, sexual attractiveness
Most specific ballroom dance, hip-hop, salsa IQ, academic achievement, bullying, friendship, manipulation/propaganda, dating, romantic relationships

Note that it is possible to combine general terms for art and specific terms for  adaptations, traits, or behaviors, and vice versa.  For example, a search for dance AND cognition uncovers a wealth of research sources.

Also note that it can be productive to search for information on:

  • art terms and adaptation terms in combination:  theater AND psychology
  • art terms and adaptation terms individually:  hip-hop AND history
