About the Center for Historical Culture
On May 12th, 2006, the Center for Historical Culture (CHC) was established at Erasmus University Rotterdam. The Center initiates, coordinates and produces academic research on historical culture. The term historical culture refers to various forms of historical understanding and relationships to the past, articulated by individuals, groups, institutes and large communities in a broad array of narratives, media, ideologies and attitudes. The Center also collaborates with museums, memorial centers, heritage institutes and educational institutes, by providing advice and stimulating reflection on practices of professional, disciplinary and public uses of the past.
