In this virtual lecture hosted by the Penn Cultural Heritage Center, Patty Gerstenblith, Ph.D., J.D., will discuss the concept of the "universal" museum and its historical underpinnings. Dr. Gerstenblith will explore its origins across the arc of the 19th century, the inequities of the international legal system and its shortcomings, and the continuing justifications for the retention of looted cultural objects by European and North American museums and collectors.

A message from City of Asylum:
As the days grow darker, Sampsonia Way is getting brighter!

We just finished our fifth “house publication”—the writer houses with artworks on their façades. This House Publication is based on texts and drawings by City of Asylum’s writer-in-residence Tuhin Das. And the bright colors represent the flag of Bangladesh, his home country.
