Description

Wednesday, December 4, 5:00 - 6:30 pm
Penn Humanities Forum Lecture
Past Imperfect: Archaeology and War in Iraq and Afghanistan
The looting of art and antiquities during times of war is as old as warfare itself. What's different about more recent efforts to protect cultural artifacts? Dr. C. Brian Rose, Curator-in-Charge, Mediterranean Section, shares his work preserving museums, libraries, and ancient sites in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also discusses the cultural heritage training program he developed for U.S. troops deploying to the Middle East. This lecture is presented as part of the Penn Humanities Forum's 2013–2014 theme, Violence. Pre-registration required; to register, visit www.phf.upenn.edu or call 215.573.8280.
