Experience UWF: "Stolen Antiquities and White Collar Crime: The Case of the Persian Guard"
Start Date: 11/21/2019Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 11/21/2019End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
Join the UWF College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities as Dr. Donna Yates, University of Glasgow, presents the next installment of the Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series.

In 2011 a man walked into the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts during regular opening hours and stole a 2500-year-old Persian relief of a guard valued at over $1.2 million. Many of our most respected museums house stolen antiquities. High-end auction houses and dealers sell loot on a daily basis. Upstanding citizens freely engage in this criminal market. Yet unlike with most illegal commodities, such as drugs or arms, trafficked antiquities can be openly bought and sold, and are often put on public display. How is this possible? Using the Persepolis relief as a case study, this lecture will discuss how research from criminology can be used to understand crime in the art world.

Join for the lecture and reception, both free and open to the public. RSVPs are not required, but seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Reception - 5:30 to 6 p.m.; Lecture - 6 to 7 p.m. Location: Museum of Commerce (201 E Zaragoza St, Pensacola, FL 32502) To learn more about the series, visit Or, for questions, contact
