Cultural Property and the Question of Repatriation
Tuesday, February 18, 2020
Amphitheatre Off Campus Location
Daniel Herwitz will be presenting an essay on the current and controversial topic of repatriation: the return of objects from European and American museums to their sites of origin. France has recently committed itself to the return of a significant number of objects to African nations, Greece has long demanded the return of the Elgin Marbles and not got them, the University of Michigan's Museum of Anthropology has repatriated native American burial remains back to Native American communities. The question of repatriation is--the essay will show--a window into larger and more luminous issues of intellectual and cultural property, demanding cosmopolitan negotiation in the name of historical justice.
