This seminar explores the complex history of art looting and destruction, the motives behind it, the methods by which it occurred and the impact it made not only upon those involved, and, indeed, humanity as a whole. The course uses specific case studies of both political and religious iconoclasm, as well as historical and contemporary incidents of art looting-especially during times of war and unrest-and both examines the pertinent literature that chronicles the theft of objects of art and investigates the impacteon works of art and architecture.
