International Symposium
AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE
Research, Protection and Preservation of Nepal’s Cultural Heritage

The international symposium, organized by the Austrian Academy of Sciences, is bringing together academics and heritage practitioners from Nepal, Austria, Germany and the UK – archaeologists, philologists, anthropologists, epigraphists and conservators – who have been active in developing research methods and approaches for protecting and preserving the cultural heritage of Nepal in the aftermath of the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake. The Institute of Conservation is prominently represented with two lectures on earthquake response and conservation activities in Patan, Nepal, at this symposium.
Altogether the symposium will provide insights on new research approaches to Nepal’s past, as well as on information about current steps being taken to protect its cultural heritage together with stake-holder communities, particularly in the face of future earthquakes in this seismically active region.
