The Work and Play of the Mind in the Information Age: Whose Property?

December 8
3:00 pm
Foreign Languages Building, Room 1080

This book tells a series of living stories about a domain of social activity— “the work and play of the mind”—in a particular historical epoch, the “information age.” The stories concern political processes and movements as varied as the World Trade Organization’s Trade Organization’s Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, China’s Great Firewall, practices of image sharing in social media, Occupy Wall Street, The Arab Spring, The Alt-Right, and the use of geographical indications by indigenous peoples and farmers to defend their lifestyles. In its theoretical analysis, the book illuminates four alternative political agendas for the work and play of the mind, as they unfold through different processes for becoming property.
