Dr. Rhonda Reymond

A portrait of Doctor Rhonda Reymond.

“Whose Culture? Global Art Crime” will investigate historical and contemporary issues surrounding the destruction of cultural objects, whether for reasons of ideology, profit or simple neglect. This includes looting and the appropriation of objects for purposes of propaganda and economic gain, including illicit trafficking and selling of fakes and forgeries; and the restitution, repatriation, reconstruction, conservation, and artistic interventions of art and cultural heritage. Students will interrogate issues related to ownership of objects and competing claims to culture and the role of ethical collecting and display.
