UCSB "AUTHORSHIP" CONFERENCE: WHOSE WORK IS IT ANYWAY?

Tuesday, November 3, 1998 - 16:00
Santa Barbara, CA

Technological innovations are producing a crisis in authorship, but they are also forcing a reexamination of such issues as legal ownership and worldwide protection of works of art. Scholars will examine how authorship is being modified by electronic media and attempt to envision what shape future models of authorship may assume at a University of California, Santa Barbara conference next Friday and Saturday, Nov. 6-7.

"For the past 200 years, the status of the work of art as the product of the imagination of a single individual has held a particular privilege. Creative work has been valued to the extent that it is conceived and executed by a sole artist or author," says Simon Williams, conference organizer and director of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center.

"Authorship is a subject that has come to prominence in the past 20 years as a legal category as well as cultural and aesthetic categories," adds Mark Rose, chair of UCSB's English department and conference participant. "Ownership of intellectual property is a key element in contemporary economies."

This exploration into the dramatic changes that have taken place in the status of authors and art since the Enlightenment will take place in the IHC's McCune Conference room beginning at 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov 6. See attached schedule. For more information, call 893-3907.
