Law and Culture: The Elgin Marbles to Napster|
Fall 2013 not offered
This seminar introduces students to some of the rapidly evolving legal debates about art and cultural property--display, repatriation, theft, wartime destruction--as well as intellectual property: copyright, the Internet, and so on. How have museums, Interpol, and UNESCO navigated the murky (and often dangerous) waters of art and cultural property law? How have legal scholars, publishers, newspapers, authors, and media empires such as Google struggled to define the terms by which "information" reaches audiences? Readings will include case studies, legal theory, and a wide range of polemical treatises.
