Pick a case study or topic that indirect or directly relates to the illegal antiquities trade. I prefer that you use an international case or topic where at least part of the case occurs outside the US. You must OK your topic with me at least two weeks before the assignment is due. Research and write a 5 double-spaced pages (not counting citations) about your topic. I expect you to use at least 5 original sources in your research. Your sources can include scholarly articles, chapters, books, or newspaper articles. If applicable, cite the UNESCO convention and other international conventions and proclamations to contextualize the case. I encourage you to include your own thoughts on the case and its broader significance.
