My name is Andrea Wallace. I am a lecturer at the University of Exeter Law School and an open access advocate.
I have a PhD in Cultural Heritage Law from the University of Glasgow with the CREATe RCUK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy in partnership with the National Library of Scotland. I previously received an LLM in European Business Law from Radboud University in the Netherlands, a JD from DePaul University College of Law, and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I am also registered attorney with the Illinois State Bar in the United States.
My research explores legal issues surrounding copyright, cultural institutions, and the public domain. It considers the impact of digital technologies on the preservation, interpretation, and dissemination of cultural heritage and the obstacles and opportunities presented by the digital realm. I frequently write and present on open culture and the impact that a claim to copyright in reproductions has on meaningful access and reuse of cultural heritage in the public domain.
I am currently working with the Wikimedia Foundation and Creative Commons on a Declaration on Open Access for Cultural Heritage and have written a research paper to support this process called "Critical Open GLAM: Towards [Appropriate] Open Access for Cultural Heritage." Some of my projects include Display At Your Own Risk and the Copyright Cortex. You can find my papers on SSRN. Watch my keynote at New Zealand's 2017 National Digital Forum.
