Special Topic: Gender and Traditional Cultural Expressions
Friday, April 1, 2010
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Washington College of Law | 6th Floor
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20016
The Eighth Annual "IP/Gender: Mapping the Connections" Symposium focuses
on the special theme of gender and the production of traditional
cultural knowledge. Since colonial times, the specific cultural
productions of discrete human communities have been systematically
under-valued and relegated to the status of "naturally occurring raw
materials" in legal and economic regimes. The consequences of
introducing IP regimes in this area may have special significance for
women and their communities, or may reflect underlying assumptions about
gender, women's proper role in decolonization and development, and the
distributive consequences of IP regimes.
This event will be webcast live with the ability for participants to
submit questions electronically. One week after the event, the webcast
will be available on-demand.
