202215jun11:59 pmCall for Applications: Summer School on Contested Heritage and the Role of Provenance Research Event Organized By: Centre for Global Heritage and Development

Event Details

Every year -at the end of August – the Centre for Global Heritage and Development organizes a summer school. This year, our summer school will focus on contested cultural objects and the role of provenance research (ownership history). What are the standards for heritage protection and ownership of cultural objects that were (or might have been) looted, recently or in the past? Moreover, what is the role of law enforcement in these matters? In an interdisciplinary setting, with scholars and professionals from the fields of law, heritage, law enforcement and the art market, we will look at the standards and mechanisms that are in place to prevent cultural objects from being acquired, and/or traded unlawfully.  The programme is curated by our experts Dr. Evelien Campfens (Leiden University) and Dr. Naomi Oosterman (Erasmus University Rotterdam)


Monday 29 August to Thursday 1 September 2022 (week 35)


The summer school will take place in a synchronous hybrid format. This means that we will be hosting the summer school from our location at Leiden University Campus, both in-person and online. There will be a mix of in-person and online presentations by our invited experts. For those who want to follow the entire summer school online, we offer attendance at a reduced rate. A maximum of 30 attendants applies.
