Training the Next Generation
Education in the Department of Conservation and Scientific Research (CSR) is a combination of training and outreach. Mentoring emerging professionals in the field and helping to develop the next generation of conservators and conservation scientists specializing in the care of Asian art is a critical goal of CSR. We strive to make the department a place to experience the wonder of Asian art, to share these experiences with colleagues and transform perceptions about Asian art materials. Our work with fellows, interns, pre-program students and volunteers facilitates and encourages new research and treatment and uses its results to elucidate art and cultural understanding. This helps our visitors to experience exquisite works of art that challenge perceptions, open minds, and reveal how art influences culture. CSR has hosted hundreds of fellows, interns and volunteers since the department was founded. Below
is a list of many of those who have passed through our doors. This list is not complete. If you worked here but don’t see your name please send information about your position, date of work and project to DCSR@asia.si.edu.
