Q. Are you looking for a "big picture" view for understanding copyright law and its application in higher education?

Q. Do you need to enhance your knowledge of the conceptual framework behind the practical copyright issues you face on a regular basis?

Q. Would you like to step behind the legal battles and economic interests in order to think more about the cultural values that influence how we think and talk about copyright?

Join the Center for Intellectual Property for a lively online workshop with cultural historian and media scholar Siva Vaidhyanathan. In a clear, straightforward, engaging style, Dr. Vaidhyanathan will offer insight to help untangle some of the intricate web of culture, law, and technology.
