In the Centre for Applied Heritage, we critically examine and constructively develop the relations between heritage and society from a multidisciplinary perspective. Our particular interest are the values, benefits and uses of cultural heritage in society. We are actively exploring new applications and uses of heritage and heritage perspectives for the benefit of society. We strengthen the links between academic and other realms of heritage and, whenever possible, seek cooperation with partners both inside and outside the heritage sector. Since we live in a globalised world our focus is global too.
The core researchers of the Centre for Applied Heritage are affiliated with the subject areas of archaeology, history, film studies and environmental studies. The Centre operates across the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, and indeed across the entire University, to bring together researchers and their projects examining the relations between heritage and society and developing its potential to transform society.
