UnCommon Core: The Past for Sale: Addressing Archaeological Looting

The illicit antiquities market is a global problem with serious consequences for scientific knowledge, global politics, local cultural identities, and the objects themselves. In this session a panel will discuss The Past for Sale project, a uniquely interdisciplinary collaboration that studies the scope of this market and posits new strategies to combat it.
