Transcending Place and Provenance? Cosmopolitanism, National Identity, and Cultural Property
Dr. Craig Calhoun, Social Science Research Council
Rainey Auditorium, Penn Museum
Craig Calhoun will discuss his research on cultural heritage and cosmopolitanism, the role of the universal museum, social theory and politics, and on the social sciences themselves.
Debates over whether antiquities, art works, and other forms of cultural property should be ""repatriated"" have become a key arena in which claims made on behalf of nations and a cosmopolitan global elite contend.
