The Ethics of Cultural Appropriation undertakes a comprehensive and systematic investigation of the moral and aesthetic questions that arise from the practice of cultural appropriation. 

  • Explores cultural appropriation in a wide variety of contexts, among them the arts and archaeology, museums, and religion
  • Questions whether cultural appropriation is always morally objectionable
  • Includes research that is equally informed by empirical knowledge and general normative theory
  • Provides a coherent and authoritative perspective gained by the collaboration of philosophers and specialists in the field who all participated in this unique research project
