We cordially invite you to submit abstracts to Race + IP, which will be held at Boston College from April 20 - 22, 2017.

Race + IP is an opportunity to participate in rapidly developing conversations around the topics of race and intellectual property. 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, The Slants. Accepted participants will be invited to participate in these and other conference events, including a Saturday evening dance party cocktail reception.


A complete Call for Papers and list of plenary speakers is available here: http://raceipconference.org/. You can also follow us on Twitter at @raceip for updates on the conference and race and intellectual property news.


The deadline for submission of abstracts is October 31, 2016. Junior faculty members and graduate students that indicate their positions on their submissions will be considered for slots set aside for emerging scholars.

We hope to see you there!
