Research on heritage is scattered over many academic disciplines, such as architecture, anthropology, archaeology, history, law and heritage studies itself. 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 and graduate students to establish common languages, theories, methodologies and practices and to create the foundation for novel research approaches.
The Centre for Global Heritage and Development and the VU Amsterdam research institute CLUE+ organize the Re-Scape colloquia four times per year for young researchers and graduate students, to be inspired by experienced academics and professionals, learn from each other by sharing knowledge and progress on their own research and work. The colloquia are also open to anyone interested.
