Peter Herdrich: The Battle for Our Shared Cultural Heritage
Tuesday, November 26
Throughout the globe, some of the world’s greatest monuments and evidence of material culture have disappeared, leaving us bereft of their physical beauty and important lessons in shared humanity. The last decade has drawn increased interest in heritage preservation with the Antiquities Coalition, a leader in combating looting and illicit trafficking of artifacts. Its co-founder and Digital Library of the Middle East project director, Peter Herdrich, discusses the Digital Library’s visualization projects involving museums and libraries across the Middle East and North Africa, as well as its trailblazing role working with UN partners to implement international cultural heritage policy.
