About Us

The Culture, Law, and Capital Center is an interdisciplinary group of scholars with major research interests in the political economy of film, television, music, and literary production. Our areas of expertise are the legal, financial, and cultural relationships that obtain between cultural producers, consumers, and their intermediaries. We are especially interested in how the digital shift has challenged extant ideas about intellectual property rights, the nature and value of creative labor, the meaning of authorship, and the definition of media themselves.
