International conference organised by Hyo Yoon Kang (Lucerne) & Jose Bellido (Kent) at University of Lucerne, 12-13 June 2014.
Practices of commodification of scientific and cultural knowledges by intellectual property have been widely analysed from the perspective of balancing public and private interests. Although this trend has been well known, less attention has been paid to the ways in which values become attached to properties. The conference aims at disentangling this complex combination and elucidate how exactly properties come to be valued and evaluated.
