From 9-20 July 2018 the Rijksmuseum, the University of Amsterdam and the Bard Graduate Center, will collaborate in offering a Summer School with an interdisciplinary focus on object-based research within a museum setting. Experts in the field will provide students with an exclusive and in-depth look behind the scenes in the conservation studios, science laboratories and museum departments where they operate.
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the notion of objects of cultural heritage as sources of information. In this summer program we will examine objects from a range of disciplinary perspectives, consider the types of information they generate and unravel the stories they can tell.
The deadline for application is 18 March 2018. Please review the University of Amsterdam website for further information on the course fee, housing possibilities, scholarships, application procedure and all related practical matters.
