December 6, 2006. Siva Vaidhyanathan, associate professor of Culture and Communication at New York University, will lead the University Seminar on New Media Teaching and Learning on December 14, 2006. Dr. Vaidhyanathan's research on intellectual property and the ways it shapes contemporary culture has resulted in two widely noted books: Copyrights and Copywrongs (2001), and The Anarchist in the Library: How the Clash Between Freedom and Control Is Hacking the Real World and Crashing the System (2004).

In this and other writing, Dr. Vaidhyanathan has promoted a "hacker ethic" that "rests on openness, peer review, individual autonomy, and communal responsibility." In the seminar, he will discuss the implications of Google's Book Search service on reading, writing and research.
