Posted by Nicholas O'Donnell on February 8, 2018 at 10:32 AM

I am very pleased to be in Chicago on February 26, 2018 at the Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law to discuss my bookA Tragic Fate—Law and Ethics in the Battle Over Nazi-Looted Art.  DePaul's cultural heritage law program is at the pinnacle of art, museum, and cultural property study, and it is a great honor to be invited.  

The book is is a comprehensive overview of the litigations over allegedly Nazi-looted art that have played out in the United States.  I will address trends in this litigation and comparisons to other countries' approaches.

The event is open to the public but registration is required.  The DePaul Center is located 25 East Jackson Boulevard in Chicago, and the event is in Room 342 (Lewis).  at I hope to see you there.

Next month I will also be speaking about the books as part of the "Great Presenters" series at the Wayland Public Library outside Boston on March 6, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.  The Wayland Public Library is located at 5 Concord Road, Wayland, MA.  Also free and open to the public, no registration is required.
