In conjunction with Evan Roth’s exhibit, Intellectual Property Donor, in the Zilkha Gallery, I (BZOD) will be moderating a panel on art and open source tomorrow afternoon. The description for the event is as follows:
Once the nearly exclusive purview of lawyers and librarians, questions of copyrights, freedom of information, and open source programming now reach into the lives of everyone. From the knock-off Prada bag, to the distribution of music, to question of privacy that could impact national security–all of these issues and more come to the fore with currently available technologies. Previously accepted precepts and practices are being challenged from all sides. Moderated by students from the blog Wesleying.org [ME!], this panel of Wesleyan faculty and students will explore these engaging issues with audience participation invited.
The panel will include Assistant Professor of Sociology Greg Goldberg, Dean of Social Studies Joyce Jacobsen, Max Dietz ’16, Isabella Litke ’12, and Music Librarian Alec McLane. Each panelist will speak for five minutes on an open source issue related to their interests, and then I will ask questions to the panel or take questions from the audience. Come! It’ll be fun.
Date: Tuesday, February 11
Time: 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM
