Faculty of Arts
Special Topic: Art Crime
Explores the growing trend of art crime through a focus on five primary areas: theft, fraud, smuggling, forgery and vandalism. These will be examined within the context of international and New Zealand case studies, including the theft of the Mona Lisa in 1911, Nazi looting in World War II and thefts during the Iraq War in 2003. Ways to curb such crime, particularly the development of art crime squads, will also be discussed. This course is taught concurrently with ARTHIST 332.
