Ep. 105: Repatriation of Museum Objects, Part 1

This week, we are sharing expertise from Souleymane Bachir Diagne who spoke on a panel last October as part of “Repatriation of Museum Objects” for Cornell University’s Institute for European Studies. Next week, we will be sharing the expertise of Cécile Fromont, another of the event’s panelists, as part 2 of this episode.

In the news, Kim and Rachel talk about recent events in Ethiopia and Niger, how food security affects us all, and the recent transfer of power in the United States.
