Winter Law School - Wisdom, Traditional Knowledge and Intellectual Property (LAW72013)

14 – 17 July, Gold Coast Campus

2pm - 6pm

Delivered by intensive classes in Week 2 of Session 2.

In Wisdom, Traditional Knowledge and Intellectual Property students will be introduced to basic concepts associated with intellectual property and how these forms of law interact with traditional knowledge and cultural expressions. 

Delivered by: Dr Allison Fish

Dr. Allison Fish is an interdisciplinary scholar whose research lies at the intersections of law, socio-cultural anthropology, and science and technology studies. The three questions that have directed much of her recent work are: What are the legal forms, technological infrastructures, and cultural logics that shape information/knowledge management practices? How do law and technology function together to mediate access? And How is accessibility increasingly framed as a fundamental human right and critical pathway to social enfranchisement? To date, the bulk of her research has addressed the application of intellectual property law to the regulation of various domains including; international markets for South Asian classical health systems, the development of digital archives and databases designed to function as defensive publications against future patents, and the impact of open access on scholarly communication practices.
