SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Literary property is a term used in publishing to refer to works generally covered by copyright but also an associated set of property rights that go far beyond what courts have historically permitted to be claimed as copyright infringement. The Writers Guild of America, for instance, uses this term exclusively to refer to works registered with its WGA script registration service, so as not to restrict the claims it or its users can make regarding their rights. Since it applies only to literary works and not technological or social constructs such as are covered by patent or trademark law, the term is much narrower in scope than the hotly contested term "intellectual property" sometimes used to refer to all non-physical works in which property rights are recognized. Among other differences, in literary works a very specific concept of attribution is a critical part of the work itself - works tend to become markedly less valued or more valued based upon who originated or created it, which is simply not the case for inventions or brand names. Also, most countries recognize moral rights that are not alienable from the work, that is, a purchaser of rights in the work does not have the right to relabel it as if someone else had written it. While the USA does not recognize moral rights, it does have complex de facto standards such as the WGA screenwriting credit system which are actually more demanding and rigorous in specific industries.

Speaker(s): Professor Sarah Churchwell, Jonty Claypole, Maya Jaggi, Frederic Raphael Chair: Professor Maurice Fraser Recorded on 27 February 2015. With the BBC having announced a remake of Kenneth Clark's TV series Civilisation, and Melvyn Bragg’s intellectual cornucopia on Radio 4, In Our Time, now in its 17th year, we will be asking whether the mission of Lord Reith 'to educate, inform and entertain' is alive and well. Can Matthew Arnold, TS Eliot and FR Leavis sleep well in their graves? Has the era of dumbing down to ' widen access ' run its course? Why shouldn't ALL schoolchildren be asked to grapple with the 'difficult' texts, rich canvases or musical scores of our western inheritance? Why shouldn't everyone have the chance to join the 'elite'? Sarah Churchwell is Professor of American Literature and Public Understanding of the Humanities at UEA. She is the author of Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and The Invention of The Great Gatsby, The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe, and her literary journalism has appeared in the Guardian, New Statesman, TLS, New York Times Book Review, and the Spectator, among others. She comments regularly on arts, culture, and politics for UK television and radio, has judged many literary prizes, including the Bailey’s (Orange) Prize for Fiction and the 2014 Man Booker Prize for Fiction, and she is the 2015 Eccles Centre Writer in Residence at the British Library. Jonty Claypole is Director of Arts at the BBC. He works across television, radio and online, ensuring the BBC succeeds in its mission of "Arts for Everyone". As a director then executive producer, he has made over 100 television documentaries for BBC Television, including landmark series like Seven Ages of Britain, A History of Art in Three Colours, A Very British Renaissance and Andrew Marr's Great Scotts. He has created strands like What Do Artists Do All Day, Secret Knowledge and In Their Own Words. He also runs BBC Television's in-house arts department with production teams right across the country. Maya Jaggi is a cultural journalist and critic who has reported from five continents, and was contracted as one of Guardian Review’s leading profile writers for a decade.She has also written for the FT, Independent, Sunday Times Culture, Daily Telegraph, Economist and Newsweek; and was writer-presenter of the BBC4 TV documentary Isabel Allende: The Art of Reinvention. Her conversations with cultural theorist Stuart Hall were made into a four-hour film by Mike Dibb. She has judged literary awards including the Dublin Impac and Orange, and chaired the jury of the Man Asian in Hong Kong. Educated at Oxford and LSE, she was described as “one of Britain’s most respected arts journalists” by the Open University, which awarded her an honorary doctorate in 2012. Frederic Raphael, a major scholar in classics at St John's College, Cambridge, has written over twenty-five novels and volumes of short stories, as well as essays, biographies, translations and many reviews. His most recent book on the ancient world is A Jew Among the Romans about Flavius Josephus. His second volume of autobiography, Going Up, will be published next year. So will his novel Private Views. Among his many film and television scripts are Darling, Two for the Road, the Glittering Prizes and Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. His most recent script, This Man This Woman is due to be shot next year. The LSE European Institute (@LSEEI) was established in 1991 as a dedicated centre for the interdisciplinary study of processes of integration and fragmentation within Europe. In the most recent national Research Assessment Exercise, the Institute was ranked first for research in European Studies in the United Kingdom. The LSE European Institute has been a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence since 2009. This event forms part of the LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival 2015, taking place from Monday 23 - Saturday 28 February 2015, with the theme 'Foundations'.

Frances Ann "Fran" Lebowitz (born October 27, 1950) is an American author and public speaker. Lebowitz is known for her sardonic social commentary on American life as filtered through her New York City sensibilities. Her books: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=96458231b69d25a8ec8d4aae2f9ab37d&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=fran%20lebowitz Some reviewers have called her a modern-day Dorothy Parker. Lebowitz was born and raised in Morristown, New Jersey. After being expelled from high school and receiving a GED, Lebowitz worked in many odd jobs before being hired by Andy Warhol as a columnist for Interview. This was followed by a stint at Mademoiselle. Her first book was a collection of essays titled Metropolitan Life, released in 1978, followed by Social Studies in 1981, both of which are collected in The Fran Lebowitz Reader. She has been known, in part, for Exterior Signs of Wealth, a long-overdue, unfinished novel, purportedly about rich people who want to be artists, and artists who want to be rich. She also made several appearances on Late Night with David Letterman and had a recurring role as Judge Janice Goldberg on the television drama Law & Order from 2001 to 2007. A heavy smoker, Lebowitz is known for her advocacy of smokers' rights. In September 2007, Lebowitz was named one of the year's most stylish women in Vanity Fair's 68th Annual International Best-Dressed List; she is known for wearing several distinctive pieces: Men's suit jackets tailored by the Savile Row tailor Anderson & Sheppard Wing-tip cowboy boots Men's white button down shirt Levi's 501 jeans Tortoiseshell glasses On November 17, 2010, she returned to The Late Show with David Letterman after a 16-year absence. She discussed her years-long writer's block, which she jokingly referred to as a "writer's blockade." On November 22, 2010, HBO debuted Public Speaking, a documentary about her by Martin Scorsese containing interviews and clips from speaking engagements. Lebowitz's upcoming book, Progress, was first excerpted in Vanity Fair in 2004 and in 2012 had a 2015 publication date. An automobile enthusiast, in 2011 Lebowitz owned and drove a vintage pearl gray 1979 Checker Marathon, which she kept in the East Village in Manhattan. Books: Metropolitan Life, Dutton, 1978. ISBN 978-0-525-15562-1 Social Studies, Random House, 1981.

This abstract in International Sign is for the 7th International Deaf Academics and Researchers Conference: http://deafacademics2015.com/call-for-abstracts/ This is the English version of the abstract: Deaf Politics and the Right to Life: Literary Expressions of Ethnocide “No one suggests the safest cure. A change of heart,/a tender understanding, a pair of hands signing.” Raymond Luczak’s “How to Cure Deafness” This talk looks at the power of literature in fostering a Deaf bioethics and dismantling harmful schemas about Sign Language Peoples (SLPs). My research methodology derives from cognitive literary studies. I examine how the cognitive processes involved in reading fiction’s imagined dystopic futures, which bring about “The End” of SLPs, affects perspectives on group rights for deaf communities. Schema critic Mark Bracher’s Literature and Social Justice: Protest Novels, Cognitive Politics and Schema Criticism inspires my presentation on Deaf literature and our cognitive processes; the presentation derives from my dissertation, “Transatlantic Deaf Literature and the Human Rights Claims of Sign Language Peoples.” Why study Deaf literature? I argue that the urgent political claims of texts like American writer, Karawynn Long’s short story, “Of Silence and Slow Time” (1995), British novelist, Nick Sturley’s Milan (2003), British filmmaker, Ted Evans’ The End (2011), and British poet, Donna Williams’ “When the Dead are Cured” (2013) speak to the “in-between” area of Deaf literature, Deaf Studies, and Deaf politics. This “betweenness” positions Deaf literature as a bridge between disability studies and ethnic studies. From the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of People with Disability (UNCRPD) to arguments against ethnocide, Deaf politics involves grappling with the group identities of both disability and ethnicity. In examining the “betweenness” of Deaf politics, I find that Long’s “Of Silence and Slow Time” is a paradigmatic text—showing us how the Deaf ethnic contends with audist beliefs about the “undesirability of Deaf lives.” This story presents a future state undergoing scientific ethnocide, the deliberate destruction of an ethnic group. The state’s control over the reproductive lives of Deaf women contributes to cultural genocide and demonstrates the undesirability of “defective” deaf lives. All of the aforementioned authors present bioethical concerns about linguistic genocide, cultural genocide, and/or ethnocide in stories that imagine the end of SLPs. In doing so, they consider the implications of the ideology of ability, defined by Disability Studies scholar, Tobin Siebers, which necessitates the eradicating of deafness in the medical industry’s centuries-long search for a “cure”—a cure that some may say has been achieved by cochlear implants and that others say is ever closer with new genetic engineering laws. The authors above offer an imaginative take to the challenges of Deaf futures, which enables the activation of cognitive processes that can “produce lasting, socially transformative psychological changes in readers” (Bracher ix). Because the authors present the search for a cure as a eugenic campaign in modern form, readers that practice schema criticism have the power to correct faulty cognitions, which, according to Bracher, is key to reducing injustice. It is my hope that, from this talk, SLPs and their allies can learn from the successes and limits of various strategies of resistance as we work to promote a deaf bioethics.
