Dr. Anwar Anaid, Dean of School of Social Sciences and
Director of CCHH participated in a workshop organized by the Iraqi Institute
for the Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage (IICAH).
In the workshop, Dr.
Anaid introduced the collaborative project between UKH, University College
London, and University of Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum (collectively known as the
Nahrein Network). He briefed the participants on the funding opportunities
provided by the Nahrein Network and encouraged professionals in the field of
cultural heritage to apply for these opportunities and conduct
interdisciplinary research aiming to: better understand the current situation,
raise the profile of local expertise, improve the job prospects of the region's
youth, help heritage organisations better serve local needs, and help
post-conflict healing and reconciliation.
