Opportunities: 27 June 2018


Learning, networking, conference and employment opportunities in cultural property, art crime research, antiquities trafficking research, provenance studies, and related things. Postings are not endorsements.

As you all may have noticed, this list has been on a long hiatus. There are a lot of reason’s for this, some of them are detailed in this blog post. Suffice to say, I hope that the list will slowly come back as I find a bit more spare time for it. Please do send any announcements of jobs, events, etc that you’d like me to share. Currently the list goes out to about 800 subscribers and I would like to see you all informed about what’s up.

Please let me know of any opportunities to announce.

Be sure to sign up for the Opportunities List.
