Who Owns Antiquity?

The Classics Department at Stanford University presents a Lorenz Eitner Lecture on Classical Arts and Culture intended to publicize classics scholarship to a wider public audience.

The last ten years, in particular, have been dominated by discussions of cultural property--either its destruction in zones of military conflict or its involvement in litigation and claims for repatriation. This lecture reviews recent developments in the art and antiquities market, the shifting acquisition policies in museums, and cultural heritage training programs for U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
