Matthew Sag at Notre Dame, Friday 4/12/13

Matthew Sag, Associate Professor of Law at Loyola University Chicago, will be visiting Notre Dame this Friday (4/12) to give a lunchtime talk on copyright, text analysis, and the legal issues involved in digital humanities research. (Practical details below.)

Professor Sag has written widely on intellectual property law and was the lead author of an influential amicus brief in the recent HathiTrust case that cleared the way for “nonconsumptive” computational use of large digital archives. He’s an important thinker doing work in an area of law that touches more of us in the humanities every day.

All are welcome; hope you can join us. Light lunch will be served. Please do feel free to pass along word to anyone who might be interested!

Professor Sag’s visit is sponsored by the Notre Dame Working Group on Computational Methods in the Humanities and Sciences with generous support from the Office of the Provost.
