Both PASSIM PI Eva Hemmungs Wirtén and Doctoral candidate Isabelle Strömstedt will be presenting papers at the forthcoming ISHTIP workshop in Australia, between July 4-6, 2019. Hosted this year by Isabella Alexander at University of Technology, Sydney, ISHTIP has become an important interdisciplinary venue for scholars whose work engages with intellectual property, both historically and in the present. This year’s theme, “IP and the visual,” promises to be a very stimulating one. On May 22, 2019, PASSIM organizes a “pre-ISHTIP” seminar where our two ISHTIP participants will discuss their papers and talk about their current research. Eva Hemmungs Wirtén’s paper is entitled “Evidence, Envelopped: Something on Proof, Priority and Patents (but not necessarily in that order)” och Isabelle Strömstedt’s “Celebrating Patents: the Swedish Patent Office’s Jubilee Exhibition of 1941.” The seminar will take place at Tema Q, Tvärsnittet, Norrköping, between 13.15-15.00. What do envelopes and exhibitions have to do with patents? That’s what we’ll talk about at the seminar.
