Centre for the Arts in Society

Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society (LUCAS) is dedicated to ground-breaking and interdisciplinary research dealing with the relations between culture and society.

LUCAS hosts a variety of academic disciplines, covering the period from classical antiquity to contemporary culture. LUCAS is therefore uniquely placed to study the broad concept of the Arts, with its rapidly changing ideas and theories of cultural production, as a response to societal challenges.
