Richard Leventhal (above), anthropology professor at the University of Pennsylvania and curator of its Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, recently informed me that he assigns CultureGrrl to students in his course on Museums and Cultural Heritage. I’ve also been read by Steven Miller‘s students in the graduate school program in museum professions at Seton Hall University, and Harry Martin III‘s art-law students at Harvard Law School. Maybe I should compile the CultureGrrl textbook.
Although I do not agree with all of your comments, I think that your blog is one of the most interesting focused on museums within the new world.
He stepped down last year from the directorship of Penn’s museum to launch its Cultural Heritage Center. Leventhal is a strong proponent of source countries’ claims for the return of cultural property. I’m more of a moderate on this issue.
No wonder he sometimes disagrees with me! (At least we agree on CultureGrrl.)
