Event description

Description

The Mint presents....

After the Crash, huge amounts of money sought refuge in the global art market, a market facing huge risks of forgery and fakes. Anja and Andrew Shortland discuss the challenges of regulating the global art market.

Dr Anja Shortland (MEng Oxon, MSc and PhD LSE) is Reader in Political Economy at King’s College London. Her main research area is the economics of crime and she has published widely on piracy and kidnap for ransom. Her work usually cuts across disciplinary boundaries adopting techniques and insights from sociology, engineering, geography, politics, international relations and economics.

Professor Andrew Shortland (MA, MSt, DPhil Oxon, FSA, FGS) is Professor of Archaeological Science and Director of Cranfield Forensic Institute, part of Cranfield University. He leads a multidisciplinary team that is interested in niche forensic areas such as explosives, ballistics, body recovery/identification and digital forensics. His own research concentrates on applying scientific techniques to the investigation of historical and archaeological objects, especially those with dating, provenance or authenticity questions hovering over them. He advises the British Army, Metropolitan Police and major auction houses and museums about cultural property protection and the problems of illicit antiquities.
