Periode: 1-2-2015 t/m 31-1-2019
UvA researcher: Linda van de Kamp
An ethnographic research in the regenerating areas of Amsterdam-north. Linda van de Kamp focusses on the dynamics between old and new inhabitants, entrepreneurs, artists, welfare workers, religious groups, housing corporations and authorities in dealing industrial and cultural heritage, public rituals, and media and communication technology. Her aim is to rethink the role of culture in our cities beyond the dominant one-sided approaches of culture as creative expression or ethnic background, by taking into account the importance of life histories, social class, local-global connections, worldviews and the relationship with urban sites.
