Uses of the past

About

The Faculty of Arts at Aarhus University has many research projects and dissemination activities that focus on uses of the past. Scholars from a broad variety of disciplines are in different ways working on the uses of the past. Uses of the past are studied in its many different expressions, in many different places in the world and in different epochs. The faculty research priority area "Uses of the Past" will promote collaboration among these scholars and bring more national and not least international visibility to their results.

Holocaust History, Memory, Memoir and Migration.

Uses of the Past hosted a visit by professor emeritus Saul Friedländer on 23 October 2018.Watch our conversation with him on "Holocaust History, Memoir and Migration":
