Boston College hosts Race + IP April 20–22, 2017. The call for papers deadline was in October. (See our post from last spring.)

Sponsors: Boston College Institute for Liberal Arts, Boston College Law, African and African Diaspora Studies Program (BC), Communication Department of Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences (BC), the Institute for Intellectual Property & Social Justice, Inc., and MOSAIC.

The conference will feature five plenary sessions which develop and engage the subfield of critical race IP, concurrent sessions with scholars across disciplines conducting multimethodological research, roundtable discussions on special topics related to race and intellectual property (e.g. the intersections of social media, algorithmic culture, and racial justice), and a special presentation by Chinatown Dance Rock band and trademark renegades, The Slants.
