Welcome, Occidental students taking CSP 11: Copyright and Culture (and anyone else who might have stumbled across this)!  This blog will serve a number of functions over the course of the semester, including:

  • A place to download the syllabus, track assignment deadlines, and link to course readings
  • A site to share supplementary links, articles and ruminations on our weekly course topics (including, but not limited to, your weekly blog post assignment)
  • A space for you to continue discussions with your classmates, beyond the classroom
  • An archive of the digital projects you will create over the course of the semester

Ideally, I’d like for us collectively evolve this blog beyond the practical purposes listed above to create a space where we can have an ongoing conversation, not just about course content, but how you might take the ideas and critical theories we are engaging with outside the confines of the classroom.  We will be circling around larger issues that deserve more nuanced analysis than we will likely have time for in class, and the blog is an ideal space to deepen those discussions.

This is your space, so have at it!
