Introduction 

Nour is a PhD researcher at the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM) & the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). He is mainly interested in cultural heritage management and conflict archaeology. Prior to his admission at University of Amsterdam, Nour finished a Master in Archaeology from the University of Warsaw-Poland. Documentation and analysis of destruction have been crucial parts of his MA thesis which titled: "Preserving Cultural Heritage in Conflict Areas, Aleppo city-Syria". His MA thesis was largely based on the knowledge and experience that he has gained while pursuing MA studies at the faculty of archaeology in University of Leiden before starting his master degree at the University of Warsaw.

Current Project

PhD Project: "The (Re)construction of Syrian and Iraqi Cultural Heritage in Post-Conflict Contexts 

The project explores the prospects of (re)constructing and rehabilitating cultural heritage sites affected by armed conflicts in Syria and Iraq. Nour's PhD project explores the cycle of heritage, by shedding light on the attitudes towards cultural heritage sites in conflict areas and how they intersect with the identity and collective memory. This research aims to provide a new approach to cultural heritage reconstruction in post-war periods to make a significant contribution to conflict archaeology studies.
