Why museums are returning cultural treasures | Chip Colwell

December 20, 2019 at 10:21 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

A confession: I am an archaeologist and a museum curator, but a paradoxical one. For my museum, I collect things, but I also return things back to where they came from. I love museums because they’re social and educational, but I’m most drawn to them because of the magic of objects: a one-million-year-old hand axe,

November 26, 2019 at 11:16 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

For the last 10 years, I’ve been spending my time trying to figure out how and why human beings assemble themselves into social networks.
