“Beyond Destruction: Politics” (March 12, 2016)

A symposium at the UC Berkeley Center for Middle Eastern Studies.

Panel 1: Politics
An exploration of the topic of cultural heritage—and cultural heritage destruction—within political discourse related to the Middle East and North Africa. How is cultural heritage being used to further the agendas of the various political groups involved, and what is the legal framework within which these agendas are being pursued? How do we bring those frameworks into the classroom, the courtroom, the field, and to the public?
