Current Research

Lori Wong currently teaches on the MA in Art History and Conservation of Buddhist Heritage at The Courtauld. Her research interest in this area began with her long-term involvement through the Getty Conservation Institute at the Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang; the Imperial Mountain Resort and its Outlying Temples at Chengde; and the site of Bagan in Myanmar. Her work as a conservator bridges practice and theory, explores conservation histories outside the west and seeks to reframe existing power structures and practice, working towards more equitable approaches that challenge and expand the ways in which cultural heritage is thought about, engaged with, and preserved. Underlying all her work is a strong desire to ensure the future sustainability of the field by positioning cultural heritage conservation within broader economic, political, sociocultural, and environmental contexts.
