BIOGRAPHY

Formerly of the interdisciplinary Fine Arts Cultural Studies program at York University, Dr. Leslie Korrick is an Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Art and Art History in the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design and is appointed to the graduate programs in Art History & Visual Culture and Science & Technology Studies. Before joining York, she held appointments at the University of Manitoba, Queen’s University, and the Ontario College of Art and Design University.

Crossing periods and geographies, Dr. Korrick’s research and teaching focus on intersections between the arts and interarts methodologies; constructions of culture through art forms, architecture, urban spaces, collecting, and display; art-science relations; and sound studies. Published in such journals as Word & Image and Early Music and in several multidisciplinary essay collections, she has also presented her research widely at conferences and guest lectures in Canada, the USA, Argentina, Denmark, England, Ireland, and Italy. Currently, she is completing a book on relationships between Italian painting and music in Early Modern theory and practice funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Her most recent essay associated with this project will appear in Music and Visual Culture in Renaissance Italy (forthcoming from Routledge). Previously the leader of York’s soundseminar, an inter-university, multi-disciplinary research group of theorist-practitioners exploring sound as a medium of contemporary artistic production and cultural marker, and a member of the working group One or Many? On the Unity and Diversity of Music, Art, and Poetry in the Early Modern World (Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, University of Toronto, 2019-20), she belongs at present to the Soundscapes working group (Jackman Humanities Institute, University of Toronto, 2019-21).

Dr. Korrick is known for innovative teaching and mentorship combining scholarly rigour and experiential learning, both in on-campus courses and her summer studies abroad course in Rome. She is a recipient of York’s Faculty of Fine Arts Senior Teaching Award and a nominee for the Postdoctoral Supervisor of the Year Award. At Queen’s, she received a Principal’s Development Fund Award for New Initiatives in Teaching and was a finalist for the university-wide Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching. The annual Maclean’s guide to Canadian universities has twice named her to its “Popular Profs” list.

Dr. Korrick has collaborated with a wide variety of Canadian arts collectives and cultural institutions including Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art, Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, Art Metropole, UpArt Contemporary Art Fair, Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, GroundSwell New Music, SoundaXis (New Music Projects), Tafelmusik, the Music Gallery, Art Gallery of Ontario, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Ontario College of Art and Design University, and Toronto International Film Festival Group.
