Call for Papers: Intellectual Property & Resistance

The University of Glasgow is calling for papers for its upcoming conference entitled ‘Intellectual Property and Resistance’ on July 6-8, 2016 in Glasgow, UK.

They are seeking a broad representation of international scholars as well as scholars from across the disciplines. Papers may concern trade marks, patents, copyright, or related rights, including confidentiality and trade secrecy, and they may be historical or address current issues from a theoretically-informed perspective. Both established and junior scholars are encouraged to submit abstracts.

To be considered for the workshop, submit a 300-word abstract of your proposed paper as well as a one-paragraph bio and 2-page CV by January 15, 2016 to . Acceptance will be notified by March 15, 2016.

Complete papers (of max. 9,000 words) will be due on June 1, 2016 so that they may be distributed in advance to registered workshop participants. Papers must be unpublished and not accepted/under consideration for publication elsewhere. It is expected that the best papers will be published in a special issue of an academic peer-reviewed journal or an edited collection.

Authors do not present their papers at ISHTIP workshops. Instead, a discussant presents a brief summary and critique to initiate the general discussion of each paper. All panels are plenary. ISHTIP workshops are thus a great venue for presenting and receiving feedback on work in progress from a global, multidisciplinary community of scholars.
