Armenian Genocide Looted Art and Restitution

Location: The Harry and Yvonne Lenart Auditorium (Fowler Museum) at UCLA

In the summer of 2023, the Armenian Genocide Research Program (AGRP) spearheaded the Armenian Genocide Looted Art Research Project (AGLARP), a multidisciplinary, collaborative research project aimed at (1) fostering research on Armenian art, cultural heritage, and other cultural objects that were looted, destroyed, or transferred in conjunction with the Armenian Genocide by using several disciplinary methods; and (2) engaging in critical thinking and action on the many dimensions of justice, dialogue, restitution, and repair regarding the losses of Armenian culture arising from the Armenian Genocide. The project is a follow-up to the AGRP’s March 2023 conference at UCLA, What’s Next?: Armenian Genocide Restitution in the Post-Recognition Era.

The AGLARP leadership team is in the process of planning the project’s second phase and will shed light on recent and upcoming efforts during a conference at UCLA on Saturday, February 10, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Pacific Time). This exciting and critical event, which the Institute for Transnational Law is co-sponsoring, will consist of a documentary screening about the March conference, discussions of the AGLARP’s summer research findings, and a roundtable on how this conversation applies to past and current events, as well as what lies next for the AGLARP.

This event will be held in-person and virtually. RSVP at
