Summer School: Contested Heritage and the Role of Provenance Research - Update & 2022 Deadline Extension
This year, our Summer School, which takes place from 29 August to 1 September, will focus on contested cultural objects and the role of provenance research (ownership history). What are the standards for heritage protection and ownership of cultural objects that were (or might have been) looted, recently or in the past?
In an interdisciplinary setting, with scholars and professionals from the fields of law, heritage, law enforcement and the art market, we will look at the standards and mechanisms that are in place to prevent cultural objects from being acquired, and/or traded unlawfully.  The programme is curated by our experts Dr. Evelien Campfens (Leiden University) and Dr. Naomi Oosterman (Erasmus University Rotterdam)
The deadline to enroll has been extended to Wednesday 15 June 2022. You can register by clicking on this link.

Student Hub - Atlantikwall
Part of our heritage has a troubled or dualistic character. This can also be said about the Atlantikwall. This defensive line was constructed by Nazi-Germany during the Second World War and stretched from Norway to Spain, passing right through the cities of The Hague and Scheveningen situated on the Dutch coast. Within the city and in the memories of its inhabitants, the traces of this line can still be experienced. Public opinion about what to do with (parts of) the Atlantikwall is divided.
