EAST 329 - 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. Field trip(s) required. This course was formerly taught as ARTS 466.

Prerequisites: one 200-level course in ARTH.
This course is cross-listed with ARTH-329
