Devi Chakrabarti

Devi Chakrabarti is a final year doctoral candidate at the Department of Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge. Her PhD project is titled ‘The Afterlives of a Disaster: Post-Earthquake Reconstruction and Spiritual Life in Bhaktapur, Nepal’. Her research explores the rebuilding of temples in post-earthquake Bhaktapur. More specifically, it considers how reconstruction projects are experienced as affective and spiritual initiatives, and how restoration activities relate to the locals’ perception of the city’s entwining material and sacred geographies.
