Via David Gill I see that George Washington University is bringing in speakers to discuss antiquities issues. The series is entitled”Museums and Antiquities“. Tonight will be James Cuno, sure to offer some provoking opinions: James Cuno: “Museums, Antiquities, and the Politics of Cultural Property”. If any readers end up attending, please drop me a line with any observations.
Coming up will be:
- February 18, 2010. Patty Gerstenblith: “Museums and the Market: Preserving the Past by Regulating the Market in Antiquities”
- March 4, 2010. Malcolm Bell: “Archaeologists’ Views on Collecting Antiquities”
