Event description

Description

The pivotal Savoy/Sarr report calls for thousands of artworks currently in French museums to be returned to the West African communities from which they were stolen. Museums and collections across the world are currently examining their histories. This roundtable will discuss implications and next steps with Ariella Azoulay (Professor of Modern Culture and Media Studies, and Comparative Literature, Brown University), Souleymane Bachir Diagne (Professor of French and Philosophy, and Director of the Institute for African Studies, Columbia University) and Brian Wallis (Curator, The Walther Collection), moderated by Marianne Hirsch and Andreas Huyssen.

This event is co-sponsored by the University Seminar on Cultural Memory, Columbia Center for the Study of Social Difference and Maison Française.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive ahead of time to secure a spot.
