About this website

Research Portal VU University

The History Department of VU University Amsterdam is engaged in various research programs and projects. Information about these programs and projects is brought together on this website, the History Department’s research portal.

Global History and Heritage in a Post-Colonial World (ghhpw) is the common denominator of many programs developed in the context of the History Departments two program lines that focus on Global History, and on Culture and Power. For the major research programs and projects this website provides brief introductions and links that lead to the homepages of those program websites. For relevant research projects that do not have their own website, like our PhD projects, this website also acts like a homepage.
