Summer School on museums and collections

In collaboration with the LDE Centre for Global Heritage and Development, a Summer School on museums and collections is organised in Leiden, The Hague, Delft, and Rotterdam. 

Things that talk...

Thingsthattalk.net brings education and research closer together. Students actively participate in this project, they acquire (digital) research skills and learn to collaborate with social partners. Ten Humanities' study programmes want to incorporate the new platform in their curriculum in the new academic year and will work with students to enrich and utilise the platform.
