AN 320 - World Heritage Sites
 
(3 cr.) The onset of globalization has brought about differing views as to the ownership of cultural property and who is best suited to assume the guardianship of the world's cultural heritage. The discipline of archaeology assumes that the past is a concrete entity that can be measured and studied. As such, archaeologists considered themselves best suited in providing tools for the management and protection of global cultural heritage. This course is intended to generate, through selected readings, a discussion on the often complex political, social and cultural ramifications related to asserting ownership of the past. Every Year
