The research of cultural anthropologist Julie Hollowell spans anthropology, archaeology, ethics, art, cultural heritage law and policy, and museum studies to consider the broad implications of how people in the present value and use “the past.” Hollowell draws from the work of IPinCH, an international project that investigates intellectual property issues related to cultural heritage, and her own ethnographic research with subsistence diggers, collectors, and dealers involved in a legal antiquities market to consider whether the question of who owns the past is really the one we should be asking. Hollowell is cochair of the World Archaeological Congress Committee on Ethics, a member of the steering committee for the IPinCH Project, and research associate in the Anthropology Department at Indiana University. The Marie Wormington Lecture is named for the renowned anthropologist who had an illustrious career at the Museum. Student discount available when purchasing tickets at the door.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
