Spring 2021 IP Lecture Series: Professor Kara Swanson, Race and Selective Legal Memory


Location: Zoom

Join us for our 2020-2021 IP Lecture Series focused on issues relating to race in intellectual property and technology law. 

Professor Kara Swanson’s article Race and Selective Legal Memory: Reflections on Invention of a Slave sheds light on historical discrimination in patent law and the role of memory in our very framing of the law. It also asks us to consider whom intellectual property law recognizes, what intellectual property law should protect, and how conceptions of race and community influence judgments in administrative forums and courts. Join us for this lecture with Professor Swanson as she presents this work in light of contemporary conversations about the relationship between race and copyright law.

If you are interested in attending this event via Zoom, please email Dr. Felicia Caponigri, Program Director of the IP & Technology Law Program, at fcaponig@nd.edu .
