Rude citizenship: Jamaican musical challenges to copyright(ed) culture

  • Haus der kulturen der Welt 10 John-Foster-Dulles-Allee Berlin, Berlin, 10557 Germany (map)

Haus der Kulturen der Welt (The House of World Cultures) in Berlin is hosting a weekend on "100 years of copyright"

Following an afternoon of discussions themed: "Copyleft or Copywrong?" I will speak about how Jamaican musical practices suggest a way of relating to each other, to culture and to the state that is less bounded by colonialism and racism. This is one of the central arguments of my book.
