Margaret Jean Westby is an artist and researcher currently pursuing her PhD at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. She has created and collaborated in dance performances, installations, and films throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Europe. Her doctoral research encompasses both a practical and theoretical approach into exploring strategies to re-map gender imbalances, behaviors, and engagement in the area of technologically augmented dance performance. At the heart of her research, she questions what is at stake in our creation of knowledge and conceptualization of digital technology to bodies? For her, the feminist perspective and dance provide critical awareness of how the human body is connected to the process and the effect of technology.
