The Iraqi Institute for the Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage (IICAH) Archive
May 16, 2018 - The E.L. Quarantelli Resource Collection is pleased to announce the arrival of The Iraqi Institute for the Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage (IICAH) Archive,
developed in partnership with the University of Delaware’s Art
Conservation Department through the work of Art Conservation student
Taylor Pearlstein. The IICAH was formed to address critical challenges
facing cultural heritage organizations in Iraq with regard to recovering
and restoring museum collections that were looted or damaged during the
country's recent wars and national turmoil. As part of a larger
research effort, Pearlstein compiled the archive to serve as a resource
for cultural heritage professionals who may look to the IICAH as a model
for long-term, international conservation education. The archive will
become part of the Resource Collection and will be available to
researchers beginning this summer.
This cross-section of resources is featured on the Iraqi Institute Archive page.
