The next workshop of the International Society for the History and Theory of Intellectual Property (ISHTIP) will be held at the University of Technology Sydney 4-6 July 2019. The theme of the workshop is ‘Law and the Visual’ and the call for papers may be found here. Abstracts are welcomed from scholars from any discipline who are researching the history and/or theory of IP. The deadline for abstract submission is 23 November 2018.
CREATe and its researchers have a longstanding affiliation with ISHTIP. CREATe members attend ISHTIP workshops regularly and CREATe itself hosted the workshop in 2016. A number of CREATe members attended the 2018 workshop, at the University of Roma Tre which included participation in a pre-event roundtable on histories of IP as told through a variety of objects.
The newest member of CREATe, Dr Marta Iljadica, who joined the School of Law at Glasgow in August of this year, also has strong connections with ISHTIP. She is a member of ISHTIP’s Governing Board and has previously participated as a discussant and as a presenter which informed work subsequently published in her monograph Copyright Beyond Law: Regulating Creativity in the Graffiti Subculture (Hart Publishing, 2016) as well as other work on social norms, copyright, and freedom of panorama.
