A New Talk on Ethics Concerning Cultural Objects

Gygaia Projects

Christina Luke was a speaker in “The Ethics of Working with and Communicating about Cultural Objects” symposium sponsored by the University of Helsinki and the Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils in the Humanities and Social Sciences in December 2021.

There was a lot of discussion about sustainability and approaches to the management of natural and cultural heritage.

Christina touched on long-term historical as well as recent desiccation narratives.

She also focused on different narratives of extraction in the region from Yemişçigöl to the Bozdağ range and how these inform how we think about the Kulaksızlar and Lydian Hoard legal cases.

Look forward to more posts from Gygaia Projects soon!
