Humanities, Copyright and New Technologies

Date: 
Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 09:00
Location: 
University of Durham

With the rise and popularisation of new technologies, novel avenues for information dissemination as well as creative innovation are constantly being created. Increasingly, the practices in question prove problematic when considered through the lens of contemporary copyright framework. This workshop will address the issues raised by approaches to creativity and information dissemination in the age of digital reproduction by providing both training on copyright  today as well as discussing modes of supporting and encouraging a relationship between technology, creative practices developed in the context and copyright. The workshop will focus on contemporary copyright issues of particular interest to scholars in humanities. Workshop sessions on offer will address a range of  contemporary copyright issues, open access as well as question of authorship and attribution in academic social media. Workshop will be led by Professor Ronan Deazley, Dr Ernesto Priego, Dr Martin Eve and Dr Caroline Edwards .
