What is repatriation and how is it conceived differently by communities, governments and research institutions? To what extent is it necessary for reconciliation? Can museums and universities engage effectively and empathetically in repatriation? How can this process involve community and community building? These were some of the questions discussed in a recent Deep Conversations seminar, hosted by the ANU Research Centre for Deep History and the Centre for Environmental History, and convened by Dr Amy Way and Dr Rohan Howitt.
