Trafficking Culture: What’s It To Me? seminar series begins
The Trafficking Culture Society is pleased to announce its Autumn 2015 seminar series, What’s It To Me? Relevancy and Impact of Doing Research on the Illicit Antiquities Trade.
The series will explore how students and researchers from art history, museum studies, archaeology, criminology and law, both at Glasgow and within the wider world, are affected by issues of looting, trafficking, collection, and exhibition of illicit cultural and art objects.
How do these issues affect you and your work? And most importantly, what can you do about them? Come along to the Hunterian Museum, or tune in live on Periscope at @meg_lambert!
All are welcome to attend, with PGR and PGT students especially encouraged.
