Heritage and Memory Studies (Heritage Studies)

Prof. Rob van der Laarse is a historian who has been involved in the Dual Master's programme in Heritage and Memory Studies since its inception in 2003.


R. van der Laarse

'Heritage allows us to visit the past. We 'read' cities and landscapes with the aid of clues derived from film and fiction.  Of all of the cities in the Netherlands, Amsterdam has the most museums and listed buildings, all within a distance of roughly half a kilometre from each other. It is therefore a perfect location for academic research into heritage.'
