The Trust gives notice that the Fifth Gilbert Murray Triennial Lecture on Classics and Internationalism will take place at Glasgow University on Friday 26 November 2021. We are delighted to announce that our lecturer will be the poet and classicist, A.E. Stallings.
The event will take place within the framework of UK celebrations for the Bicentennial of the Greek War of Independence: ’21 in ’21 (see further https://21in21.co.uk). We are grateful for the support of the University of Glasgow, the ’21 in ’21 steering committee and the A.G. Leventis Foundation. Further details will be released in 2021.
We are delighted to note the successful completion by the Canadian-Italian wanderer, Issabella Orlando, of her short documentary shot on location in London and Paris, The Return Address. This documentary explores the question of why heritage objects matter to each and every one of us, and where they belong: in museums in world cities, or in the places they originally came from. With a neutral, holistic approach, it presents both sides of this long-ongoing debate, both the benefits and problems with repatriating artefacts. The project was partly funded by a grant from the Gilbert Murray Trust. You can find the film at: www.museandwander.co.uk/film.
