Jordan Jacobs

Museum Fellow
2017-2018

Jordan Jacobs explores the selection and empowerment of certain stakeholders in determining the appropriate treatment — and ultimate disposition — of archaeologically discovered human remains. This research compares American, British, and Israeli legal and practical frameworks, and draws from Jacobs’s own policy work at UNESCO, the Smithsonian, American Museum of Natural History, and UC Berkeley’s Hearst Museum of Anthropology.
