Humanities Forum – MEMS Colloquium Lecture
“ISIS and Cultural Cleansing: Saving the Ancient and Medieval Treasures of Syria and Iraq”
Michael D. Danti, Assistant Professor of Archaeology, Boston University; Consulting Scholar, University of Pennsylvania Museum; and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London
Tuesday, March 7, 4 p.m.
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

Syria and Iraq are facing the worst cultural heritage crisis since the Second World War. This talk will address one of the greatest challenges: the cultural cleansing perpetrated by the so-called Islamic State (or ISIS) and the work of the American Schools of Oriental Research to safeguard cultural assets. Irreplaceable ancient and medieval heritage, embedded in the fabric and daily life of modern communities, is endangered as extremists erase cultural memory, manipulate cultural identity, and eliminate cultural diversity.
