What Price Culture? Destruction and Cultural Preservation in Afghanistan since 2001

When: Wed., May 2, 6:30-8 p.m.

In this six and last of the 2017-18 Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lectures, Dr. Laura Tedesco discusses the de-culturization of Afghanistan, best known in our time from the Taliban’s devastation to the Budhhas of Bamiyan, which has continued uninterrupted since 2001 through a sophisticated network of illegal excavations, the lucrative traffic in antiquities, urban development, and general neglect of the nation’s heritage.
