Welcome to the Norwegian Chapter of ACHS

At a meeting in 2015 with several research environments in Norway a desire to establish a national network for heritage research was addressed.

The national chapter would provide information on ongoing activities, but also promote and facilitate the arrangements of seminars, symposiums or workshops on heritage issues that engages researchers in Norway.


Through the Norwegian Chapter of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies (ACHS-Norway), the researchers in the heritage field could address specific issues relevant to everyday life and politics in Norway, for example on migration and notions of Norwegian national heritage or other local or national aspects of heritage in the light of Nordic and international trends.

The national network will provide an opportunity for addressing issues concerning multidisciplinary research, strengthen networking between research groups in Norway and beyond, discuss future challenges for heritage, and convey and create dialogue between heritage researcher and the Norwegian management sector and the public.
