Penn CHC partners with UNESCO

The Penn Cultural Heritage Center, led by anthropology professor and museum curator Dr. Richard M. Leventhal, has partnered with the U.S Mission to UNESCO for its "Benefits of World Heritage Project." This study aims to assess the many benefits of UNESCO's World Heritage program, and the Penn Cultural Heritage Center will be taking the lead on a comparative study of world heritage sites' value to local communities and economies.

In Fall 2013, Penn LPS is offering ANTH 639: Natural and Cultural Heritage in Global Perspective, which gives students the opportunity to be involved in this exciting project. Interested students are encouraged to contact Dr. Brian Daniels.
