From Siena to Cambodia: Tulane Upgrades Cultural Heritage Summer Program

Posted on February 14, 2012


Tulane is offering a summer program in Siena designed for law students with an interest in cultural heritage and the arts. The program offers a diverse faculty, including legal scholars as well as scholars with art history, archaeology and cultural heritage.

After finishing the three-week academic component, students will then have the opportunity to put their new knowledge to use, working on the ground in Southeast Asia. In response to the looting of archaeological sites, the Kingdom of Cambodia’s Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts is launching a department to study and combat the illicit antiquities trade. Thanks to a partnership with Tulane Law School, selected interns will have an unprecedented opportunity to become involved in this exciting work. They will travel to the capital of Phnom Penh, where they will work alongside Cambodian and international colleagues, assisting the government in one of its most crucial efforts.
