SEM in Honolulu

Alongside fellow Riddim Methodist, Larisa Mann (a/k/a, DJ Ripley), I’ll be “giving” a paper called “What Is Stolen? What Is Lost? Sharing Information in an Age of Litigation” at this year’s annual meeting of the Society for Ethnomusicology, which is happening in Honolulu from Nov 15-19.

See the program for full details on the conference, but here’re the deets for our panel:

“Shaping, Breaking, and Taking Research: Intellectual Property Dilemmas and Challenges from the Field”
Thursday, Nov. 16, 7-8:30 am
Waikiki Beach Marriott

7-7:30: Larisa Mann (UC-Berkeley)
7:30-8: Wayne Marshall (University of Chicago)
8-8:30: Liane Curtis (Brandeis University)

Yeah, it’s early, but if you happen to be in Hawaii, hope to see you there! With bells on, of course!

[update: here’s a pdf of the paper]

    […] Our panel was first thing Thursday morning (and I mean first thing: 7am!), but despite the timing (and, no doubt, thanks to some jet-lagged mainlanders — not to mention supportive cohorts), it was relatively well-attended and pretty lively. I’d like to think the interest in our panel demonstrates that the constraints and chilling effects of copyright represent a growing concern for an increasing number of frustrated (media-engaged) scholars.

    i’ll take a copy of the paper — could use some ethical guidance w/r/t the funk comp: does a “montagem” (montage), a popular funk style of essentially rapid-firing through several tracks (more mashing than mixing), count as fair use?


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
