Cultural Studies

Arts and culture in a wider context

Cultural Studies at the UvA explores arts and culture within their social and historical contexts. For example: cultural organisations are expected to work more towards their target audience, while art is used as an instrument for promoting social cohesion, and heritage tops the political agenda. Sociological and historical frameworks are used for analysing these developments.
