Intellectual Property in Anthropology

This workshop explores the way contemporary intellectual property (IP) regimes bear on our practices as anthropologists. What issues should we look out for in formalizing ownership of our scholarly products? How do publishing agreements affect our rights to share scholarship with students and colleagues or to post articles to the web? What rights and responsibilities do we have to use materials produced by others, including images, recordings, software, or other content? What policies and laws affect the digitization/preservation/archiving of fieldwork data? Session will include ample time for questions and discussion. Attendance gives credit toward the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training required by NSF.

Reception follows in Brooks Commons, 1st Floor
