My Favorite Lecture, Julia Alderson - Looting and Destruction: The Politics of Art in Crisis

Attend the Next 'My Favorite Lecture' Recording, Nov. 10
Plaza View Room, 891 8th St, upstairs in Jacoby's Storehouse

My Favorite Lecture is an educational lecture series in which Humboldt State educators share some of their favorite material with a live community audience in downtown Arcata, California. No topic is too big or small.

My Favorite Lecture is a collaboration with Arcata Main Street with support from Plaza Grill.

Throughout history, governments and political groups have looted and destroyed art to serve their propagandistic purposes - from the ancient Romans, to the Nazis under Adolph Hitler, to ISIS’s recent destruction of the ancient site of Palmyra.

For the next episode of My Favorite Lecture, Julia Alderson delivers Looting and Destruction: The Politics of Art in Crisis.

This lecture will explore the idea of art looting and destruction over time, in order to better understand the significance of such assaults against culture.

Doors open at 6:00 for a Taste of Arcata reception courtesy Arcata Main Street.

The lecture begins promptly at 7:00pm.

This lecture is being recorded for KHSU's new program/podcast titled "My Favorite Lecture", in which HSU educators give remarkable talks for a community audience.

NOTE: Due to the standing-room-only turnout at the last lecture, we recommend you arrive early to ensure a seat.
