Intellectual property rights: Governing cultural and educational futures
Kapitzke, Cushla (2006) Intellectual property rights: Governing cultural and educational futures. Policy Futures in Education, 4(4), pp. 431-445.
This article uses Foucauldian theories of governmentality to examine ways in which intellectual property rights regimes are embedded within broad spectrums of global and globalising discourses and yet are enacted through changing subjectivities at the local level. Using the 2004 Australia–United States Free Trade Agreement as a case in point, it shows how culture, education, free trade, foreign policy, and national security intersect and have the potential to limit access to cultural knowledge and textual resources for young people and educators.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
