Evening - Author Talk about Looting in Literature at the Arts Club - Farragut West
Writing the Wrongs: Looting in Literature
Stories of looting of the world’s cultural heritage abound in the press today. Almost daily the destruction and theft of antiquities appear listed among the atrocities of war. But these crimes are not limited to wartime, and they are not new. Questions of looting and how to address it are thousands of years old, and writers have grappled with these issues for just as long. Archaeologist ZoĆ« Kontes will discuss the intersection between looting and literature, with a focus on Mediterranean antiquities. She will also suggest texts for further reading on these topics, both ancient and modern, including Margaret M. Miles, Art as Plunder: The Ancient Origins of Debate about Cultural Property, and Chasing Aphrodite: The Hunt for Looted Antiquities at the World's Richest Museum, by Jason Felch and Ralph Frammolino.
