Abstract: Twenty Years of the CCCC-IP Caucus: Exploring what intellectual property has meant and will mean for composition studies #4cIP
Description: Intellectual property has a powerful impact on what we teach, where we publish, and what rights creators, students, and citizens have to access pedagogical and scholarly content produced within academic institutions. Over the past 20 years, the CCCC-IP caucus has provided a forum for discussing these concerns and setting action agendas for the CCCCs membership. Last year, 2014, marked the twentieth consecutive year that the CCCC Intellectual Property Caucus (CCCC-IP) convened to discuss the intersections of intellectual property and composition studies. It is an important moment in our organization’s history wherein we might not only take stock of what the CCCC-IP has accomplished, but also how we might move forward.

To commemorate the achievement of standing group status as well as to mark our anniversary, we will host a roundtable that seeks to engender a lively conversation about the legacy and trajectory of the CCCC IP Caucus. Specifically, luminaries, founding figures, and dedicated members from the group will offer 5-10 minute retrospectives of their experience within the CCCC-IP, telling stories about what they hoped the Caucus might accomplish, and why they felt that IP issues were consequential to the field of rhetoric and composition. Thereafter, speakers, respondents, and a special guest—Executive Director Heather Joseph of the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC)—will take up a conversation about how trends in IP might impact our field, professional organization and journals, and academic institutions over the next twenty years. We envision a conversation wherein these leaders might explore the following type of questions:

What would you like to see the Caucus accomplish in the next twenty years?

What issues between the intersections of IP and composing do you see as most important or consequential in the next 5, 10, 20 years?

How might issues such as open access publishing and repositories, open education, and open data impact the structure and nature of academic work?

How could the IP Caucus continue a rich tradition of responding to timely matters, while building or constructing an even greater leadership presence on IP within the field and the public sphere?
