Delft, Leiden, Rotterdam and Amsterdam
CLUE+ Research Institute for Culture, History and Heritage
Research on spatial heritage is scattered over many academic disciplines, such as architecture, architectural history, archaeology, urban history, landscape studies and heritage studies. These topics are taught throughout the Randstad at a range of different universities with foci in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Technology. The Re-scape colloquia aim to bring together senior and junior scholars to establish common languages, theories, methodologies and practices and to create the foundation for novel research approaches.
The Centre for Global Heritage and Development, the Design & History research group at TU Delft, and the VU Amsterdam research institute CLUE+ organize the Re-Scape colloquia for young researchers and graduate students, to be inspired by experienced academics , learn from each other by sharing knowledge and progress on their own research. PhD students will present their work in public; graduate students will discuss their theses in interdisciplinary, thematic groups.
These spatial heritage colloquia are aimed at young academics—PhD students, research master and master students—from TU Delft – Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Leiden University – Faculty of Archaeology, Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam – Faculty of Humanities to meet likeminded academics who study and work across the Randstad on related issues.
