Symposium at the University of Kansas: “A Museum's Purpose”

Posted by Nicholas O'Donnell on February 9, 2024 at 12:53 PM

I am pleased to be taking part in a symposium at the University of Kansas School of Law in Lawrence, Kansas, on February 23, 2024, entitled “A Museum's Purpose.” Organized by KU Law and the Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy Symposium, the symposium will feature presentations on a variety of cultural property topics. I will discuss a paper I am writing about the emerging concept of Fluchtgut—flight goods, or property sold by Jewish owners fleeing Nazi persecution but after reaching neutral or free territory. Other speakers include Craig M. Blackwell, associate general counsel, Smithsonian Office of the General Counsel; Col. Scott DeJesse, senior heritage and preservation officer, U.S. Department of Defense; Derek Fincham, law professor, South Texas College of Law Houston; Michael Hoeflich, John H. & John M. Kane distinguished professor of law, University of Kansas School of Law; MacKenzie Mallon, provenance specialist, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; Lauren Van Schilfgaarde, assistant professor of law, UCLA School of Law; and Jonathan Zwibel, deputy associate chief counsel, U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
