April 1 (9am-5pm) - The Eighth Annual IP/Gender: Mapping the Connections

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.
