Dr Lola Montgomery is known for her serious frivolity – being the first to perform burlesque for the academic award of a PhD. She is a dancer, blues singer and occasional writer. Being immersed in the retro subculture, she sees many bridges between ‘traditional’ and ‘contemporary’. She loves the aesthetics of bygone eras, but not necessarily the politics and is currently looking to publish her thesis for a mainstream audience.
