The Cambridge Handbook of Copyright in Street Art and Graffiti marks a pivot point in the complex and unpredictable historical journey of graffiti and street art. While they are now certainly recognised as art forms, this is not primarily an art historical narrative. Indeed, exponentially increasing levels of interest in graffiti and street art have generated a radically interdisciplinary and rapidly expanding field of scholarship and practice, reflecting street art and graffiti’s status as socio-legal-artistic phenomena that exceed the purview of any one discipline. There are now peer reviewed journals and academic conferences devoted to graffiti and street art, which bring together art historians, architects, cultural geographers, archaeologists, psychologists, criminologists, sociologists, and heritage and legal scholars to debate and define this emerging field.
