Each session will have one central object from one of Amsterdam’s heritage collections as its central theme. This object will be “taken apart” in every possible way. After such an in-depth analysis of one object, more general larger themes will be addressed through the study of related objects, group readings of related primary and secondary literature and connections with larger historical, methodological and practical questions.
Lecturer of this course is Prof. Emile Schrijver, general director of the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam.
Please note: this is an Open UvA Course at Master's level. A Bachelor's degree in the Humanities is required to cope with the level of education.
