Museums, Cultural Heritage, and Classical Archaeology
CCIV 285
Fall 2009
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ARCP 283, ARHA 238

In this seminar we will discuss the past, present, and future of classical archaeology to consider the manifold social and ethical problems of our discipline. By using case studies of specific individuals (such as Schliemann), institutions (the Getty, the British Museum), and sites (the Akropolis), we will study such topics as colonialism and nationalism, the role of the museum, the economics of archaeological exploration, site preservation, war and vandalism, patronage and the antiquities market.

Essential Capabilities: Speaking
Students will lead class discussion and are expected to engage fully in each seminar meeting. Additionally, they will give oral presentations (using images and other media) on a variety of topics.
