New course in English at Palazzo Spinelli

(Tempo di lettura: 2 minuti)

Cultural heritage is increasingly becoming prey to atrocious attacks aimed at eliminating the identity of peoples and communities. This Course aims to accompany participants in the transversal analysis of the phenomenon of illicit trafficking in cultural property in its multiple dimensions: criminological, legislative, political, economic, cultural and ethical. The Course develops as an immersive thematic path that combines the ‘frontal’ component and highly topical content with guided brainstorming activities, active reflection, critical analysis, viewing of videos in English, and pair/group work.

The Course includes a laboratory exercise on provenance research carried out in collaboration with Dr. Christos Tsirogiannis, Forensic Archaeologist, Leader of the Working Group on Illicit Antiquities Trafficking of the UNESCO Chair on Threats to Cultural Heritage and Cultural Heritage-related Activities at the Ionian University.

The Course will take place remotely, on the Google Meet platform allowing for continuous interaction with the Lecturer while staying comfortably at home. The Course is held by Prof. Alesia Koush in collaboration with Dr. Christos Tsirogiannis.

SCHEDULE: the Course will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM from 2 May 2024 to 11 June 2024 for the total of 24 hours and will be held online on the Google Meet platform.

ADMISSIONS: the course is open to all applicants; It is not necessary to have specific previous knowledge in the field, though any background knowledge would be a plus. The course is held in English, therefore a good working knowledge of the English language is recommended.
