Troubling Technological Authorship
June 20 + 23, 6-8pm ET
Verónica Uribe Del Águila
The workshop discusses technological innovation from a postcolonial perspective. Building on Kavita Phillips’ grounding work “What is a technological author? The pirate function and intellectual property” the course unpacks the subject position of both “the pirate” and “the author” in current discourses about intellectual property and open source production in the United States. By adopting and postcolonial hence transnational perspective, the workshop aim at connecting copy-right discussion in the United States with the production of modern epistemologies in the sciences.
