Lee Slinger, Ph.D., is a Toronto-based researcher, teacher and writer.

Her award-nominated dissertation examined the memory of the Tudor era in eighteenth-century Britain. Before graduate studies, she worked in sponsorships at a Québec television station. More recently, she has taught art history and writing skills at OCAD University and Ryerson University and done free-lance writing and copy editing. Her love of dance has always been a part of her life. Since attending L’École supérieure de ballet du Québec in Montréal, she has participated in a variety of recreational classes, studied dance at York and become a devoted audience member.

Navigating authorship within contemporary dance By Lee Slinger

As dance artists navigate projects and performances, they encounter differing ideas of authorship. The evolving relationship between artists and digital media sharing have also shaped how these concepts are understood. Slinger spoke with several contemporary dance artists about their understandings of ownership, authorship and the role of intellectual property in their art-making processes. She also weighs in with Carys Craig, a scholar of intellectual property, who argues that the legal system imposes binaries, such as choreographer/performer or work/performance, on creative work that do not speak to how dance is created, performed and shared.
