Sponsored by the AFS Archives and Libraries Section


Anthony Seeger (UCLA and the Smithsonian Institution)

The workers and researchers who create and use cultural collections have long been concerned with issues of rights. These issues include not only questions of copyright and other intellectual property matters, but also cultural rights and the abilities of culture makers to influence the ways in which their stories and materials can be used.

To further explore these issues and offer folklorists and community partners an opportunity to discuss these issues in depth, the AFS Archives and Libraries Section is sponsoring a half-day workshop on intellectual property and cultural rights, led by Dr. Anthony Seeger of UCLA and the Smithsonian Institute.

In the first part of the workshop, Dr. Seeger will answer questions and facilitate audience-driven discussion on legal and cultural rights pertaining to collections. Then, after a brief break, Dr. Seeger will moderate a conversation between participants on rights issues, offering participants a chance to discuss topics and incorporate perspectives from their own collections and communities.

With this event, the AFS Archives and Libraries Section hopes to facilitate discussion and communication between cultural stakeholders at multiple points on the collections spectrum – from culture creation to collections management.
