Contested Collections: Grappling With History and Forging Pathways for Repatriation
Tue 5/17/2022 • 9AM - Thu 5/19/2022 • 2PM PDT
Join us for Contested Collections: Grappling with History and Forging Pathways for Repatriation, an online symposium hosted by UCLA Library and co-sponsored by the UCLA Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies. This four-part series featuring international experts explores the complicated histories of cultural heritage collections, the expropriation of artifacts through colonialism and looting, the politics and ethics of ownership and restitution, and decolonization in libraries, archives, and museums.
The symposium will consist of four sessions spread out over three days. The first two panels will focus on the historical roots of the problem and the current calls for rectification. The latter two will focus on existing and potential pathways for repatriation.
