Choreographing Copyright: Race Gender, and Intellectual Property Rights in American Dance
Choreographing Copyright is a new historical and cultural analysis of U.S. dance-makers’ investment in intellectual property rights. Stretching from the late nineteenth century to the early twenty-first, the book reconstructs efforts to win copyright protection for choreography and teases out their raced and gendered politics, showing how dancers have embraced intellectual property rights as a means to both consolidate and contest racial gendered power.
This event is made possible by a generous grant from Georgia Elliott and is free and open to the public.
