Invitation to symposium: Contested Collections: Grappling With History and Forging Pathways for Repatriation

 Dear all, 

I am inviting you to this four-part symposium that I’m coordinating. We often think of repatriation as a museum issue, but it applies to libraries and archives as well. We have an excellent lineup of international speakers. Please visit our symposium site to learn more about the programs and speakers. And do register (it’s free!) if you plan on attending. Please share widely and excuse cross-posting. 

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 from May 17 to 19, 2022. 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.  


For more information about the programs and speakers, please go to the symposium site. Registration is required, so do RSVP.
