Fall. Next offered 2017-2018. 4 credits.

M. Fiskesjö.

In this course we explore “cultural heritage” as an idea, and as objects which change hands across continents. Our focus is the global trade of fragments of monuments, statues, tomb furnishings and other antiquities derived from poorer areas of the world, ranging from Benin and Afghanistan to China and Cambodia, transferred to collectors and museums in wealthier countries. We use anthropological perspectives to explore a range of issues such as contested spoils of war, looting and international law, auctions and collecting, value and representation, as well as the role of knowledge, the academy, and world public opinion.
