Conference 1: Law and Print in Postcolonial Contexts: Censorship, Copyright and Piracy
Organized by Laetitia Zecchini (CNRS) at the University of Chicago Center in Paris, July 5-6, 2024.
This conference addresses the relationship between print and legislation, censorship and copyright in postcolonial contexts. It aims to explore the role of colonial and postcolonial institutions, of the state and other gate-keepers in the regulation of print; the forms and practices of cultural regulation and censorship particular to certain postcolonial contexts; as well as the many alternative, informal or interstitial publishing networks, spaces and practices operating outside official (or monitored) circuits.
