Each year students of the Heritage and Memory Studies master’s programme explore current issues in the field during an excursion abroad. The excursion allows students in the programme to acquire new skills that help them understand heritage and memory in context, theories about the presentation, representation and narratives of heritage, and think about practices of collecting, display and usage of heritage.

The excursion enhances the theoretical knowledge and practical experience of students with current debates about identity, belonging and remembrance. Last semester, the excursion took place in Rome, Italy. The students presented on diverse topics related to narratives of heritage in the city such as ancient heritage, Islamic heritage, fascist heritage, industrial heritage, food heritage, sustainability, (dark) tourism and digital heritage.

The video below gives an impression of the excursion in Rome, coordinated by AHM members Prof. Ihab Saloul and Drs. Dana Dolghin.
