The Semester of Intellectual Property at University of Iowa

"What is it with you Iowans and copyright?" - representative of the Visual Arts and Galleries Association, speaking to UI Art Museum Curator Pamela Trimpe

This entire semester in Iowa City there's an exciting series of events happening called the Semester of Intellectual Property. Organized by Kembrew McLeod and other University of Iowa faculty, it includes museum exhibits, film screenings, lectures, and the Collage Conference, which several detrivores will be attending as speakers and performers, March 24-26.

Also a part of the series was a one-day symposium last Friday, called Intellectual Property: An Interdisciplinary Conversation, which I attended. I have compiled some notes, photos, and thoughts from the symposium on a web page, at http://detritus.net/IPsemester/ipsymposium/
