Negotiating Culture Book Launch

Celebrate ISI's first book! A book launch and book signing for ISI's first edited collection, Negotiating Culture, will be held at Amherst Books on October 11 at 4.30 p.m. Edited by Laetitia La Follette, the volume includes contributions from David Bollier, Stephen Clingman, Susan DiGiacomo, Oriol Pi-Sunyer, Margaret Speas, Banu Subramaniam, Joe Watkins, & Martin Wobst and originated from ISI's productive faculty seminars. A review by contributor David Bollier can be found here. Negotiating Culture examines issues of cultural heritage and intellectual property in a variety of contexts, from contests over tangible artifacts to more abstract forms of culture such as language and oral traditions.
