Colonial Heritage and the Politics of Museums in the 21st Century

- Culture and Politics Event Series
As part of this Culture and Politics specialisation event, Leiden staff member Dr. Diana Natermann will speak about colonial heritage and the politics of museums in the 21st century. A very current and hot topic, no doubt, so students are encouraged to come with questions for the Q&A session to follow the talk. This event follows nicely from a recent discussion with the Dutch Ambassador for International Cultural Cooperation who, among other issues, spoke about the Dutch government’s recent return to the Indonesian government of a dagger that belonged to the leader of the rebellion against Dutch colonial rule, Prince Diponegoro.
