Call for Papers and 6th Annual ARCA Interdisciplinary Art Crime Conference, June 28-29, 2014

It was my great privilege last year to speak at the 5th Annual Art Crime Conference, hosted by the Association for Research into Crimes Against Art (ARCA). The conference, in Amelia, Italy, annually draws experts in varied fields of law, cultural property, archaeology, law enforcement, and more. It is also held in one of the most spectacular venues I have ever seen, a rocky outcropping , with a medieval Italian city on top of a Roman-era settlement (complete with a cistern at the top of the hill).
