WE CORDIALLY INVITE YOU TO REGISTER FOR RACE + IP 2017,
TO BE HELD AT BOSTON COLLEGE FROM APRIL 20 – 22, 2017.
THE SCHEDULE FOR PLENARY AND CONCURRENT SESSIONS IS NOW AVAILABLE. FREE TICKETS FOR THE SLANTS CONCERT ARE ALSO AVAILABLE!
PLENARY SPEAKERS REFLECT ON THE NEED FOR CRITICAL RACE+IP
Race + IP is an opportunity to participate in rapidly developing conversations around the topics of race and intellectual property. The conference will feature five plenary sessions which develop and engage the subfield of critical race IP, concurrent sessions with scholars across disciplines conducting multimethodological research, roundtable discussions on special topics related to race and intellectual property (e.g. the intersections of social media, algorithmic culture, and racial justice), and a special presentation by Chinatown Dance Rock band and trademark renegades, The Slants. Accepted participants will be invited to participate in these and other conference events, including a Saturday evening dance party cocktail reception.
We look forward to seeing you in Boston in 2017!
