Exhibition of fieldwork photographs

Fieldwork photographs of Meike de Goede, Catherina Wilson and Mirjam de Bruijn (with African Studies student Vera Bakker) have been selected for the LeidenGlobal Photo Exhibition Heritage on the Move. The exhibition will travel around the different Faculties of the University in the coming months.

On June 6th, during the Annual LeidenGlobal Lecture, prof. dr. Mark Rutgers, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, will launch the first LeidenGlobal photo exhibition in Museum Volkenkunde. The photo exhibition is centered around the theme 'Heritage on the Move'.

The photographs of the exhibition are provided by scholars of LeidenGlobal partners. Out of almost 50 submissions, LeidenGlobal carefully chose 12 photographs to participate in the exhibition. Three of them are photographs by researchers of the Institute for History.

Heritage on the Move
Cultural Heritage is often understood in terms of local identity alone, but in fact it travels across the globe; and it has done so since times immemorial. In this process people may change, but so does the cultural heritage on the move.

Exhibition on the Move
The photo exhibition itself will also travel around, to show it not only to the different faculties and institutes of Leiden University, but also to a broader public to show that there is a lot of expertise in Leiden of cultures from all around the world. The exhibition will be launched at Museum Volkenkunde, but it can only been visited there on June 6th during the LeidenGlobal event. The first official location to visit the exhibition is the Faculty of Archaeology (LU), where the exhibition will be opened on June 15th during the Centre for Digital Heritage Meeting 2017.

Registration for the launch can be done through LeidenGlobal. Only a few spots are left, so register before 1 June!
