Call for Papers: Values, Questions, and Methods in Intellectual Property
On April 22, 2016, the St. John’s Intellectual Property Law Center, in collaboration with theSt. John’s Law Review, will host Values, Questions, and Methods in Intellectual Property. “The symposium will bring together diverse viewpoints on questions of means and ends in IP research: What do we think IP law is for, and how would we know (or find out) if it were achieving the ends we set for it? This one-day event will be devoted to finding areas of consensus, sharpening disagreements, and identifying research targets and appropriate methodologies for pursuing these targets at a time when the discipline seems to be in a particularly introspective mood.”
Deadline: Scholars interested in contributing to the symposium should submit an abstract of no more than 500 words outlining their proposed essay and identifying which of the three topics they propose to address to iplc[@]stjohns.edu, under the subject line: “2016 Symposium Proposal”. The deadline for proposals is November 1, 2015. Selected contributors will be notified by December 1, 2015.
