Mission

Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture

Located at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam, the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM) is a research institute and doctoral school committed to the analysis of the remnants and narratives of the past in the present, as well as of the remaking of pasts into heritage, memory and material culture.

AHM seeks to integrate all branches of research focusing on the material and intangible remains of the past, the reciprocal relations between objects and meanings, and the dynamics of memory, from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives, concept-oriented, object-oriented and user-oriented approaches. The integrative, interdisciplinary and critical approach of problematising, conceptualising and analysing heritage and memory acts, and material culture practices, policies and politics on all levels in Europe and beyond is unique to AHM.
