HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Dartmouth College is hosting a summit to examine last year’s earthquake in Nepal from a variety of perspectives.

The April 25 earthquake killed more than 8,000 people and leveled villages across many remote regions of Nepal. The summit, being held Feb. 18-20, will bring together member of the Nepalese government and representatives from a variety of disciplines, including technology, medical relief, anthropology and the visual arts.

Participants will talk about the disaster and what they have done individually or as organizations, and make connections to continue the conversation in the future.

Kenneth Bauer, a program manager for Dartmouth’s John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, said the summit’s major speeches and panel discussions will be streamed online, and he expects an international online community to pay close attention.

“One objective for Dartmouth is to walk our walk in terms of being multidisciplinary, spanning boundaries and getting a full representation of disciplines and approaches to the problem of disaster relief and redevelopment,” he said.
