History is the future

The members of the Department of History and Art History use their knowledge of the past to better understand the challenges facing today's society. The future of Europe, the threat of terrorism, increasing inequality, new forms of citizenship, continuing globalisation, management of cultural heritage, the role of art in shaping identity, art as a political statement and the international aspect of Dutch art are all examples of themes we address. Research into these themes not only provides greater depth of academic knowledge, it also contributes to current debates concerning political and social challenges, culture and international relations.
