Neubauer Collegium Panel Discussion on Antiquities

The Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society will host a penal discussion with Fiona Greenland and Morag Kersel, co-curators of the current exhibit The Past Sold (running April 3 - May 13, 2017), on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM. The speakers will "present the contrasting episodes of artifact movement featured in the exhibition: the legal, state-sponsored sale of artifacts from the Early Bronze Age site of Bab adh Dhra’ (Jordan) during the late 1970s, and the illegal looting of archaeological sites in Syria and Iraq during the current and ongoing armed conflict in the region. Please see the panel discussion website for more information.
