Description:

This course looks at the history, purpose, and legal structure of museums; the significance of national laws, international treaties and the ethical considerations that govern acquisition, accessioning, deaccessioning, deacquisition, loaning, borrowing and conserving art and antiquities. We will explore such questions as how museums deal with the art and antiquities market, with artists' rights, and with cultural property during conflict. In Rome, the focus will be on how Italy investigates art and antiquity theft and provides for recovery and return.
