The Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property at the University of New Hampshire School of Law and the Institute for Intellectual Property and Social Justice invite IP scholars, policy makers, and social activists to submit paper and project proposals for presentation at the Fourth Annual IP Mosaic Roundtable Conference, which will be held on October 25-26, 2018.
The theme of the Fourth Annual Mosaic Roundtable Conference is IP Unbundled: Theory, Policy and Practice. In the global information age, IP rights affect all aspects of life, and it is crucial that our laws, first crafted in the eighteenth century, protect consumers and the public as well as producers and distributers. Intellectual property regimes play a critical role in human development, socio-economic empowerment, and the preservation and promotion of social justice. Many IP regimes, however, have been structured or interpreted to reflect only the interests of an entrenched status quo; socially cognizant IP theses are often ignored or rejected as tangential or antithetical to commoditization-centered theories of IP protection. At the Mosaic Conference, a diverse collective of academics, policy leaders and activists will convene to consider and critique intra and extrajudicial means of disrupting and dissecting traditional notions of IP protection.
The deadline for submitting paper and project abstracts (no more than 500 words) is July 15, 2018. Submit to Professor Tuneen Chisolm at firstname.lastname@example.org, with subject line “IP Mosaic Submission — [Last Name]. A detailed conference program will be distributed in the coming weeks. For more information in the interim, please contact Professor Tonya M. Evans at email@example.com.
