Dr. Jane Anderson is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Museum Studies at New York University. She has a Ph.D. in Law from the Law School at University of New South Wales in Australia. Her work is focused on the philosophical and practical problems for intellectual property law and the protection of indigenous/traditional knowledge resources and cultural heritage in support of indigenous knowledge sovereignty. Since 2007, she has also worked as an Expert Consultant for the World Intellectual Property Organization on a number of policy proposals for the protection of traditional knowledge and cultural expressions. Her most recent project with Kim Christen Withey is Local Contexts. This project includes new Traditional Knowledge (TK) Labels as an educational intervention to address the unmet needs of indigenous communities to manage their intellectual property and cultural heritage specifically within the digital environment. The project is in its testing phase with a range of communities, institutions (including tribal libraries, archives and museums) and universities nationally and internationally.
