We are interested in local, national, transnational and global cultural heritage communities, heritage processes and conflicts. Our students have collaborated with various cultural heritage organisations and gained valuable work experience in producing the oral history, recording local histories, arranging cultural events, and planning live role games, museum exhibitions and various digital representations of cultural heritage. We also perform critical research on cultural heritage institutions and their activities and develop the theory of cultural heritage research.
