Stanford Heritage Ethics (SHE) is an inter-disciplinary group that aims to situate our treatment of heritage firmly within the issues of ethics, politics, memory, nationalism, internationalism, musealization, materiality, conservation, development, aid, governmentality, tourism, repatriation, cultural property, intellectual property, collaborations, indigenous archaeology, restitution, codes and declarations from which they are inseparable.

He challenged participants to think about the labels we use to identify our work in addition to methodologies and the ethical issues that we confront in our research.
September 27, 2010: Our organizational meeting highlighted potential themes and readings related to UNESCO, World Heritage, community archaeology, and methodology. We plan on exploring these topics further in a creative atmosphere and comfortable environment. Because of the many visitors the Archaeology Center will be receiving, we would like to focus on specific research our guests have completed to better prepare for their arrival and to engage them in lively discussion.
