Forms of Innovation: Humanities, Copyright, and New Technologies
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 often 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 and 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 key questions in copyright, open access publishing as well as challenges of authorship and attribution in academic social media practices.
