ARTH 329OC - Cultural Property? Art, Heritage, Ownership

FC ARHU CD WADV
4 credits
This course considers the issues and stakes that underlie antiquities and their export to disparate contexts to explore the larger question: who owns the past? We will examine positions on ‘cultural property’ from the perspective of archaeologists, art historians, collectors and museums, and explore issues of nationalism and national heritage, (illicit) trade and forgery, the preservation of world monuments, and recent legal cases. Students will research case studies and argue positions in the debate. This course is part of the MINING the MUSEUM StudiOC Learning Community.
Prerequisites & Notes: Prerequisites: An intermediate-level course (ARTH 200-level, formerly ARTS 300-level) or consent of the instructor.
