Course Description: 

The course will introduce students to issues specific to the acquisition, collection maintenance, display and publication of arts from the ancient Mediterranean, perhaps the most legally and ethically complex area of museological practice, and to the civic engagement and operation of a small, important collection, specifically the Menil Collection. Additionally, students will engage in directed research on artifacts using archival records, library resources and the objects themselves.
