We are pleased to announce our upcoming Study Forum, on February 22nd 2020 (Saturday).
This special edition of the forum will take place in a new location, namely the beautiful and historic town of York. Founded by the Romans in 71 AD, there are a number of cultural heritage sites to visit and explore in this gem of Northern England, not least of which the venue for the Study Forum itself, King’s Manor. A Grade I listed building, this manor has played a prestigious role in British history since medieval times and presently belongs to the campus of the University of York. Moreover, York Art Gallery, a stone’s throw from the venue will be presenting its largest solo exhibition to date, Harland Miller: York, So Good They Named It Once, supported by White Cube.
Covering a busy day of talks combined with a unique opportunity to meet with others in the field and share ideas, this forum’s schedule will run from 9:45 am to 5pm and is packed with a variety of speakers, amongst which:
- Professor Geoffrey Bennett (IAL Senior Fellow), ‘The law of Treasure’
- Crispin Oliver (Barrister, Dere Street Chambers), ‘Treasure: examples and case studies’
- Dr Rebecca Reynolds (IAL Researcher and Lecturer), ‘Planning law and the Clifford’s Tower dispute’
- Professor Michael White (History of Art Department, University of York), ‘Ready-made Rietveld: The Red/Blue Chair as a test for artistic craftsmanship’
- Dr Emma Waring (Senior Lecturer, Law Department, University of York), ‘Location, location, location? Mapping the legal protection of sculpture’
- Professor Amy Werbel (Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York / Fulbright Scholar, University of York), ‘Censorship and obscenity in law and culture’
