Welcome to the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies (CCHS) at the University of Gothenburg. Cultural heritage is the reworking of the past in the present. We are devoted to critical and interdisciplinary studies of the many layers of cultural heritage as a material, intangible, emotional and intellectual field. CCHS operates as an inter-faculty research centre at the University of Gothenburg.
CCHS activites are framed in research areas and the Heritage Academy - a platform for, and collaboration with, external actors as museums, archives, NGO's etc.
Centre for Critical Heritage Studies aim to be an open, dynamic research environment with an international outlook, and we invite collaboration.
