ARHS 3310 - War, Looting, and Collecting of Ancient Art


Credits: 3

Examines the effects of war, looting, and collecting practices on the visual culture of the ancient world. Looks at the ways ancient wars and looting caused art objects to be destroyed or relocated, but also inspired the creative repurposed, collecting, and even creation of other arts. Investigates the devastating effects of modern wars and looting on archaeological sites, and analyzes how contemporary collecting practices both contribute to and raise awareness against cultural heritage destruction.
