February news from the Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture.

The main news this month is that we are delighted to welcome Sir Richard Arnold to the Centre as an Associate Fellow. Sir Richard delivered the paper ‘Current Issues in Entertainment Law: An IP Perspective’ to a packed audience.

Guy Osborn had the article ‘Risk and benefits in lifestyle sports: parkour, law and social value’ published in the International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics. This is a joint authored piece with Paul Gilchrist from the University of Brighton as part of an ongoing project.

Danilo Mandic gave a paper as part of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities Crossings series. His paper was entitled ‘When concepts become norm: Copyright law through conceptual art’ and Kaja Marczewska acted as a respondent. 

Finally, Centre Fellow and Writer in Residence Mike Garry visited to work with our Creative Writing students, mine the archives and begin work on another new Centre project which will be revealed over the next few months.
