Leerdoelen Understanding of the complexities of the concept ‘cultural heritage’, both as a field of research connecting different historical perspectives, and as a practical task for preservationists with a background in architectural history and architectural design.
Omschrijving Around 1800 we witness the rise of a new notion: some buildings and artefacts are believed to represent a community’s shared identity and they therefore deserve to be preserved. This notion is strongly related to the ideas of ‘nation’ and ‘people’ that became instruments of cultural policy in the wake of Romanticism. The preservation and restoration of monuments, ancient as well as modern ones, is the outcome of this development. In the course we will study the values behind this practice, which has become institutionalized almost everywhere, albeit with significantly different national overtones.
