Konstantinos Arvanitis has asked me to pass along the following information on the Museums & Restitution Conference:
The provisional programme of the Museums and Restitution conference (University of Manchester 8-9 July 2010) is now available http://www.arts.manchester.ac.
Museums and Restitution is a two-day international conference organised by the Centre for Museology and The Manchester Museum at the University of Manchester. The conference examines the issue of restitution in relation to the changing role and authority of the museum, focussing on new ways in which these institutions are addressing the subject.
The conference will bring together museum professionals and academics from a wide range of fields (including museology, archaeology, anthropology, art history and cultural policy) to share ideas on contemporary approaches to restitution from the viewpoint of museums.
