Heritage and Wellbeing

Research group

Short description

The Heritage and Wellbeing research cluster is active both at the University of Gothenburg (UGOT) and at the University College London ( UCL).
Material as well as immaterial heritage is of importance for identity formation, sense of connectedness, mental health and wellbeing. The overall aim of this cluster is twofold. Firstly we want to develop insights, knowledge and interdisciplinary methods concerning the impact of heritage on mental health and wellbeing. Secondly, we want to explore and understand more about the heritage of mental health and wellbeing practices.
