The 12th Annual Workshop of ISHTIP, 13-17 July 2020

The ISHTIP Call for Papers is open until Friday 17 January. The Workshop will be held in Bournemouth (UK) from 13 to 17 July 2020 and the theme is “Landmarks of Intellectual Property”:

[…] Proposals are invited to consider the different ways in which a place, a time, a personality, a case, or a particular year has become a landmark of IP. These might include challenging or questioning (the idea of) landmarks of IP; proposing new ones; or highlighting unsung ones, be they milestones, vantage points, beacons, breakthroughs, events, turning points, or anniversaries. Contributions may also critique dominant frameworks or theories, thus putting into perspective the significance of such turning points by highlighting the role of historical contingencies, discontinuities and cultural difference. […]

The call is also open to ‘non-traditional’ outputs, such as video essays, documentaries, pieces of performing arts etc. It will include a doctoral-student panel dedicated to the work of Martha Woodmansee.

Important dates:

  • Submission of proposals: Friday 17 January 2020
  • Notification of acceptance: Friday 7 February 2020
  • Submission of final contributions: Monday 1 June 2020

All details of the call and the submission form can be found here.

CIPPM Workshop, 11 March 2020

The Call for Papers is open for the all day event, Economics of Copyright in the Cultural and Creative Industries, at the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management (CIPPM), Bournemouth University on 11 March 2020.

Christian Handke and Ruth Towse invite paper contributions – draft papers and extended abstracts are welcome. Handke and Towse are editing an issue of the Journal of Cultural Economics (impact factor 1.825) on the topic and intend to include a selection of papers from the Workshop in this issue, for which there would be a word limit of 7,500 words.

In this wide-ranging subject area, contributions are sought on topics including the role of copyright in artists’ labour markets (earnings, motivation, contracts, CMOs), in industrial organisation (platform economics, contracting, specific industries e.g. games) and regulation (copyright law, competition law and CMOs). The organisers also welcome theoretical papers that advance understanding of these topics.

Abstracts/papers should be submitted to Ruth Towse on by the end of January, 2020.

The Workshop is supported by CIPPM as part of its Jean Monnet programme. All details can be found here.
