CALL FOR PAPERS
Intellectual Property and the Anthropocene
26-27 June 2024
The 15th Annual Workshop of the International Society for the History and Theory of Intellectual Property (ISHTIP) will be hosted by Boston University School of Law at Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts, United States.
We will explore themes connected to problems related to global environmental changes related to human-centered domination of the planet. The concept is not without controversy – when it began, its obfuscation of differences among humans with diverging claims and impacts, its embedded human-nature dualism. These questions, and the roles of technological changes, industrialization and capitalism, as well as contested views on “progress” anchor debates about our planet in climate crisis. We are especially interested in papers that explore historical and contemporary manifestations of these themes, as well as others. Please refer to the full call for papers.
To be considered for the workshop, please submit a 300-word abstract of your proposed paper as well as a one-paragraph bio and 2-page CV by January 8, 2024 by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
FOR THOSE SUBMITTING PROPOSALS PLEASE GO TO THE BOSTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW WORKSHOP WEBSITE. <https://www.bu.edu/law/engagements/intellectual-property-and-the-anthropocene/>
