Description

US Public Diplomacy and Cultural Heritage Preservation in Afghanistan
April 16, 2013 5:30pm-7:30 pm
Penn Museum, Classroom 2

Preservation of cultural heritage is an important part of U.S. diplomatic efforts to support Afghanistan’s people and government as they establish a more secure, prosperous and resilient state. This support acknowledges the universal value of Afghanistan's endangered culture patrimony and includes the conservation and protection of Afghanistan’s national cultural heritage, including historic monuments, archaeological sites, folk arts and traditions, and museums, with a major focus on the National Museum of Afghanistan in Kabul.

At this talk, Dr. Laura Tedesco, Cultural Heritage Program Manager for South and Central Asia for the Department of State, will discuss the US-supported efforts, successes and challenges in the long term preservation of Afghanistan’s cultural heritage.

This event is free to the public.
