Miyuki is currently a research and teaching assistant in the ERASMUS+ project “Exploring cultural heritage for fostering academic teaching and social responsibility in higher education (EU-CUL)”.

The aim of the project is:

  • to measure how universities carry out their social responsibility (“Third Mission”) through the use of cultural heritage:
  • to indicate how higher education can more effectively use the resources of cultural heritage and to promote its educational value.

United in a consortium consisting of four other universities, Miyuki is one of the project members tasked with identifying good practices in heritage management, formulating recommendations for partners, and developing an innovative, interdisciplinary course curriculum for engaged researchers and students of heritage. Miyuki will work on the project until mid 2021 with Dr Monique van den Dries who heads the Leiden University partnership.

Curriculum Vitae

Miyuki holds a BA in Archaeology (2017) and an MA cum laude in Archaeological Heritage Management (2019), both from Leiden University. Her interests in gender issues are informed by her previous tenure as liaison officer at the UN Agency for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women). Her BA research consisted of analyzing  gender representations of archaeological reconstructions in Dutch elementary school books. Her MA thesis discusses the clash between cultural rights and women’s rights within the context of Japanese heritage management and the ambiguous role of UNESCO herein.
