February 22, 2018

Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies has invited Stamps Associate Professor Rebekah Modrak as an honored guest and featured voice at their Fair Use Week Symposium on March 1, 2018. The one-day program, “Tried and True: Fair Use Tales for the Telling,” celebrates Harvard’s Fifth Anniversary Fair Use Week, with leading fair use scholars and practitioners sharing their stories and engaging in discussion about this powerful provision in copyright law.

During the symposium, Modrak is scheduled to speak on the panel “Fair Use Makers and Policy Shapers,” where she will talk about legal contests to her interventionist work Re Made Co. (http://remadeco.org), an artwork posing as a “company” to critique brand appropriation of working class identities, and her use of sourcing in her latest work, Rethink Shinola (http://rethinkshinola.com).
