Project Description

2017 will mark the 70th anniversary of United States-Nepal relations, as the U.S. recognized Nepal in 1947. U.S. policy objectives toward Nepal center on helping it build a peaceful, prosperous, and democratic society. U.S. Embassy Nepal PAS wants to mark the occasion of the 70th anniversary with virtual and print exhibits. To commemorate, the U.S. Embassy plans to launch a series of outreach events throughout Nepal and educate rural public about the strong diplomatic ties that the countries hold. Due to conflicts and natural disasters in Nepal, many records in Nepal have been lost.
The intern will research U.S. archival material including photos, film clips and other images and articles. The intern will also seek out online options for curating the event. These details would be made available for public outreach events during the 70th anniversary celebration.
