This course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental concepts and methodologies inherent in the anthropology of cultural heritage and museums. In the initial segment of the course, participants will delve into critical inquiries and themes within the anthropology of heritage. This exploration will encompass various ethnographic approaches, addressing processes ranging from heritage value and social and political construction of heritage forms, as well as critical and ethnographically-informed studies on the collection, classification, conservation, and care to curation, participation, decolonization, and display of heritage.

The second part of the course will focus on the intersection between heritage and social as well as environmental justice. Emphasis will be placed on real-world examples of injustice, such as heritage looting, illicit trade in antiquities, extraction, political exploitation of heritage, and cultural appropriation. Additionally, the course will explore emerging justice-oriented practices, including issues related to ethics and consent, participation, recognition, restitution, reparation, and redistribution.

Conducted in English, the seminar and associated readings will be accessible to students in that language. However, students are encouraged to communicate in German during class discussions and have the option to submit their course requirements and MAPs in German. Lecture materials, including slides and notes, will be provided to students, and proactive engagement with the lecturer regarding any additional learning needs is strongly encouraged. For inquiries and communication, students may reach out to the lecturer at
