*Intangible Cultural Heritage and Intellectual property*

If you have expertise in these areas, I would love you to contribute to the book Transboundary Heritage and Intellectual Property Law: Safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage (Routledge, 2021)

You will be invited to write a chapter (8,000 words -- all inclusive: footnotes and bibliography). Drafts are due by the 31st of April 2021 (for internal peer-review purposes). If you would like to co-author the piece with someone, this is also welcome.

To maximize the potential impact of the volume in connecting transboundary heritage studies more firmly to intellectual property law, I kindly ask you to consider a chapter on ‘ownership’ bearing in mind that the book is interdisciplinary, so contemplate a reader that has no law background. I ask you to reflect on the following matters when drafting your chapter:

1. Concepts of property rights, possession rights and responsibilities; including collective rights, and control access. This should focus on key legal concepts.

2. Desires for access and control over traditional knowledge, and genetic resources.

3. Traditional proprietary system and how they operate in different contexts, for instance: civil law, common law, national law, international law, and customary law.

4. How does the law operate in practice in relation to transboundary intangible cultural heritage?

5. What are the flaws of the system? Suggestions to improve are welcome.

6. Please provide short examples if possible or you can develop the chapter on a case study.

Finally, if you would like to contribute, please submit an abstract of 400 words to me by the 8th of March, 2021. This will allow the editor to give some guidance at the early stages of preparation of the manuscript. In your abstract, please include the central thesis and the structure. Also, include a short biography and contact details.
