Nieuwe master Herkomstonderzoek & Restitutie aan de UvA

The University of Amsterdam offers a new Master specialisation about provenance research and restitution within the Dual Master’s programme Heritage and Memory Studies. This programme is now open for registration through March 1st, 2024.

Restitution Studies

Provenance and restitution are current and urgent issues for museums, collections and heritage institutions, as well as society at large. The specialisation Restitution Studies allows students to focus on the interaction between social debates, policies & regulations, institutional concerns and the object itself.

This specialisation covers three main areas of restitution debates:

  • illicit trade and looted objects in the contexts of archeology;
  • World War II; and
  • the colonial past.
