What fresh perspectives can viewing copyright law through a Humanities’ looking glass bring to key notions of tomorrow’s copyright law? That is the central concern which runs throughout the research project at the heart of this conference. In the construction and analysis of copyright norms, economic and technological concerns have long dominated the debate. Insights from such diverse disciplines as literary studies, musicology, film studies, philosophy of art and media studies on notions of authorship and originality have gone largely unnoticed. This conference brings together a rich variety of academics and artists.
Speakers and panelists include Professor Barton Beebe (NYU Law School), Professor Lionel Bently (U Cambridge), Dr Laura Biron (U Cambridge), Professor Georgina Born (U Oxford), Professor Martha Buskirk (Montserrat College of Art), Dr Elena Cooper (U Cambridge), Professor Donna Cox (U Illinois), Professor Mireille van Eechoud (U Amsterdam), Dr Stef van Gompel (U Amsterdam), Professor Jostein Gripsrud (U Bergen), Professor David Hesmondhalgh (U Leeds), Professor Bernt Hugenholtz (U Amsterdam), Professor Peter Jaszi (American University Washington), Dr Erlend Lavik (U of Bergen), Professor Derek Matravers (Open University) and Joseph Nechvatal.
