Researching Ivory Workshops

Researching Ivory Workshops are intended for anyone with active research interests and/or curatorial or conservation responsibilities for objects made from ivory – whether from elephants or other species – who would like to know more about current research in universities and museums on their identification, origins, working, uses, history, exhibition, curation and conservation, and the potential for future multi-disciplinary studies. The workshop should also appeal to individuals responsible for monitoring and controlling the illegal contemporary trade in ivory and ivory products.
