Call for Papers: Race + IP.

May 24, 2016 at 7:38 pm Leave a comment

The conference Race + IP will be held April 20-22, 2017, at Boston College Law School.

Intellectual property (IP) is an increasingly important site of social, political, and economic struggle.  An emerging body of scholarship has begun to consider how IP reflects and reinforces inequalities along lines of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, and disability.  This body of scholarship examines how knowledge production regimes contribute to local and global economic disparities, dispossession of oppressed peoples, and hierarchies of power.  Race + IP offers an opportunity to explore in depth and in particular the relationship between race and intellectual properties.

Submit an abstract of no more than 500 words of the proposed paper with your name, position, and affiliation to  Organizers welcome abstracts from participants at all stages in their careers.  Abstracts must be received by September 30, 2016.

Presenters will be expected to circulate completed papers of approximately 8,500 words by March 15, 2017, so that they may be distributed to moderators and panelists. Papers must be original and unpublished (not accepted/under consideration for publication). The best papers will be published in an edited collection which outlines the theoretical investments, aims, methods, and directions of study of critical race IP.
