Inconvenient Heritage masterclass (Dutch)

These past years we have become more and more aware of the traces of our colonial past in our Heritage collections. At the same time, there is discussion on the definition of ‘Uncomfortable Heritage’ and the way to deal with it.

Core values, such as diversity, inclusivity, accessibility and multi-vocality are the basis for the improvement in visibility, usability and conservation of our heritage.

Course Description

The two-day masterclass Inconvenient Heritage, a collaboration between Maastricht University and Radboud University, explores the way in which heritage-professionals can respond to the current discussions and the changing policy on heritage collections in a colonial context.

The first module gives an insight in the latest developments; the second module focuses on the possibilities, chances and risks in the investigation on finding traces in the collections. We discuss how to translate international and national developments into a practical strategy for our own collections. Networking is one of the main objectives of this masterclass.
