Arthur Crucq is affiliated to the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society as University Lecturer. He teaches courses in the BA programs of art history/ arts, media and society, as well as in the MA arts and culture. His lines of research broadly concern the relationship between perception and reception, the significance of style in art, architecture, ornament and (sub-) cultures, and the aspect of agency within the context of ornament and sculpture as applied to architecture. With regard to the latter his latest research concerns aspects of agency that affected the debate surrounding the restoration of ancient temples on Java by the Archaeological Service in the former Dutch East Indies.
