Archaeologist to lecture on ‘The Politics of Public Display’

On Wednesday, November 7, Morag M. Kersel, an archaeologist and anthropology professor at DePaul University, will give the lecture, “The Politics of Public Display: Museums, Artifacts from the Holy Land, and the Public Trust.” The event is free and open to the public, and will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Room 537 of Leggett Building.

In addition to her work at DePaul, Kersel is co-director of the Galilee Prehistory Project. She has a special interest in cultural heritage policy, archaeological ethics, and museum display and exhibition. Using an exhibition of Holy Land artifacts, her lecture will examine the differing strands of museum obligation—to the public, to students, to board members, to the academic community, to the country of origin, and ultimately to the archaeological record.
