Description:

How, when, and for whom does dance become a form of intellectual property?

Anthea Kraut, an alumna of Northwestern’s Theatre and Drama Program and Chair of Dance at the University of California-Riverside, provides an overview of her award-winning book, Choreographing Copyright: Race, Gender, and Intellectual Property Rights in American Dance. Long before the practice became legally established in 1976, artists attempted to copyright their dances and, in so doing, both contested and consolidated the power of racialized and gendered bodies in US culture.

This talk is part of Bodies in Motion, a speaker series organized by Mellon Dance Studies with support from the Program in American Studies, the Department of Art History, the Dance Program, Global Avant‐Garde and Modernist Studies, the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Theatre and Drama, and the Department of Performance Studies. Co-presented by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities as part of the Institute's 2016-17 Debt Dialogues series.
