Dr Zhang Qiaoyun will introduce the ‘cultural reconstruction’ project in the ethnic Qiang villages after the 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake. Drawing on ethnographic explorations of disaster, culture, and state-ethnic relations, she will analyse and reflect on how ethnic culture can be properly considered in the state-led post-disaster recovery planning.
