The term “cultural economy” has been employed by scholars interested in the cultural dimensions of financial and commercial activities as well as by those interested in the economics of culture in societies past and present. In pairing this term with intellectual property, the fifth annual ISHTIP workshop seeks to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion about the different ways culture and economy interact and how their interactions shape norms and regulations pertaining to IP. Case studies situated in a specific historical context are welcome, as are papers that trace the flow of legal ideas and cultural practices across time and space, whether the subject is copyright, patent, trademark, or related rights. We invite contributions from established and junior scholars working in the humanities and social sciences, including literature, history, anthropology, philosophy, law, economics, music, science studies, media studies and critical theory.
