Research Resources

Access our new research guide, ‘Reconstructing Nepal: The 2015 Earthquakes and their aftermath’, created in partnership with the UBC Library which contains links to trans-disciplinary scholarly, governmental, and non-governmental textual and visual materials related to Nepal’s 2015 earthquakes and subsequent reconstruction processes.

This research guide is intended to provide an overview of English-language materials that address Nepal’s series of earthquakes in April and May 2015, as well as the ongoing responses and repercussions of those events on all of Nepal’s individuals, institutions, and regions. The guide provides reference linksto students, faculty, researchers, and community at UBC and the general global public. However, some resources require personal or institutional subscriptions to access them.

We are also collaborating on a searchable digital library database with a related project led by Professor Michael Hutt entitled  ‘After the Earth’s Violent Sway: the tangible and intangible legacies of a natural disaster’. The database will be hosted at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), at the College of London.

The SOAS Literature Database will be made available in the future.
