Chancellor Day Hall : 3644 rue Peel Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1W9

Speakers: Claire Hill and Brett McDonnell, University of Minnesota. Patent rights are intended to spur innovation. When business methods became patentable, a special concern was raised in the tax arena -- might patentability of business methods to reduce taxes spur more innovation in this socially undesirable area? Would there be adverse effects on tax revenue collections? Co-hosted by the intellectual property workshop series and the Stikeman Chair in the Law of Taxation.

Heart of an intelligent: Popular history and the justification of class revival in Russia

Mon, 2008-01-21 12:30 - 14:00
Leacock Building : 855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2T7

Michele Rivkin-Fish, Dept of Anthropology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. An exploration of popular narratives of Soviet history as a key site in which urban Russians articulated class-based subjectivities for themselves and others in the 1980s and '90s, as the legitimating institutions of state socialism collapsed. Through ethnographic examination of debates between the author and Russian interlocutors on Mikhail Bulgakov's story "Heart of a Dog," the essay identifies local narratives of the Soviet past that indict communist "class" policies for long-standing injustice against educated groups. These narratives map comparative experiences of suffering onto essentialized social categories -- "workers" and "intelligentsia" -- depicted as enduring social entities with distinct moral characters. Invoked in the late Soviet era and first decade after the Soviet collapse, such visions legitimized renewed privileges for educated groups and erased the ambivalence people otherwise felt toward market refo

Globalization before the globe: Regulation of intercontinental trade in southern Africa, ca. CE 700-1800

Mon, 2008-01-28 12:30 - 14:00
Leacock Building : 855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2T7

Ed Wilmsen, Dept of Anthropology, University of Texas, author of "Land Full of Flies: A Political Economy of the Kalahari" (U. of Chicago Press, 1989), a critique of Richard Lee's Kalahari project from archaeological, historical and ethnographic perspectives. Abstract: In this paper, I engage a social geography in order to map the processes by which intercontinental trade was regulated in interior southern Africa during the 8th-15th centuries. This region was at that time part of an early form of "globalization" encompassing the entire Indo-Pacific province as well as the Islamic caliphates of the eastern Mediterranean. There are no written records for or from this interior region until the beginning of the 16th century, when Portuguese captured the Swahili trading entrepôts on the east coast and began to penetrate into the interior. Other forms of evidence must be adduced to illuminate the social processes active in the interior in the centuries I am considering. Mater
