Description of this panel discussion:
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, this panel of Wesleyan faculty and students will explore these engaging issues with audience participation invited.
This panel today includes Assistant Professor of Sociology Greg Goldberg, Dean of Social Studies Joyce Jacobsen, Max Dietz ’16, Isabella Litke ’12, and Music Librarian Alec McLane.
