Heritage research at the Linnaeus University (Linneuniversitetet) is to a large extent interdisciplinary and based on cooperation among departments at the university.
School of Cultural Sciences (Linnaeus University) (in Swedish)
(Institutionen för kulturvetenskap)
The department is an interdisciplinary research environment with projects studying people’s work and power, and notions of culture and how these have been mediated in different ways over time. The department is responsible for two projects together with other departments at the university: Places as stories and Concurrences: Narrating Conflicting and Simultaneous Voices in Postcolonial Time and Space, which is also a part of the project Media, Modes and Modalities.
Other projects include Tidsresans arkeologi (The archeology of a journey in time – in cooperation with Lund University) and studies on memory and heritage aspects of future storage of nuclear waste.
School of Language and Literature (Linnaeus University)
(Institutionen för språk och litteratur)
The research themes at this department include studies of how language is used in different contexts, with historical, geographic and social aspects. The department is also a partner in the linked projects mentioned above and is charge of the project Media, Modes and Modalities.
Scattered projects (Linnaeus University)
The project Places as stories also includes researchers from the School of Education, Psychology and Sport Sciences (Institutitonen för pedagogik, psykologi och idrottsvetenskap), as well as the School of Business and Economy (Ekonomihögskolan).
