Join DePaul University College of Law's Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law on Monday September 22, 2014 for "Protecting Cultural Heritage From Disaster," a special lecture by Professor Ryan Rowberry as part of the Arts Law Colloquium lecture series.
Cultural heritage around the world, particularly in urban areas, faces numerous and diverse disasters ranging from sudden cataclysmic natural events to more attenuated climate change to prolonged economic catastrophe. Professor Rowberry's presentation will set forth concrete suggestions for effective strategies that municipal and local governments may use to better protect their cultural and historic resources in these times of resource scarcity. To illuminate this discussion, Professor Rowberry will draw on examples of his recent work in Istanbul, where he is helping to safeguard and preserve the city's historic urban core, and in Barcelona, in which he, along with several other academics and policy makers, is fashioning a workable Affordable Housing program using the city's historic but underutilized structures.
There is no charge to attend this event, but all those wishing to attend must register in advance in order to ensure there is a seat available. Lunch will be served. The Arts Law Colloquium is co-sponsored by DePaul University College of Law's Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT).
