Cultural Leadership

Participation in Research Colloquia

Depending on their disciplinary background students can participate in research activities organized by the  Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG) and the  Groningen Institute for Archaeology.


The Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG is its Dutch acronym) is one of the three research institutes within the Faculty of Arts. ICOG is home to a wide range of disciplines, from History, the Arts, Literatures and Cultures, American Studies, and Media and Journalism Studies, to International Relations, Humanitarian Action and Area Studies. Beyond their distinct subject areas and approaches, these disciplines share their interest for culture as   the practices through which, now as in the past, humans define and negotiate their values, organize their societies, manage diversity, and reflect on impactful changes.


The Groningen Institute of Archaeology GIA engages in fundamental archaeological research in Northwest Europe, the Mediterranean and the Polar Regions. GIA stimulates and integrates fundamental research on past human societies and their environments, from Palaeolithic hunter-gatherers to complex urban societies. The Institute facilitates research and fieldwork through its laboratories, drawing facilities, documentation, GIS, and technical support.

    Giovanna Fossati is Head Curator EYE Film Institute Netherlands (Amsterdam) and author of From Grain to Pixel: The Archival Life of Film in Transition (2009).
