Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam

Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam is an international centre for critical thinking and academic training, driven by a strong focus on current social issues. Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam has bundled its education and research in three domains in which the university has a national and international reputation: (i) Economics and Management, (ii) Medicine and Health Sciences, and (iii) Law, Culture and Society. The principal tasks of Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam are the generation and transfer of knowledge proceeding from a high degree of social engagement. To this end, the university pursues knowledge in an inquiring, critical, investigative and flexible manner, with a strong international orientation.
In this project the Erasmus Studio is involved. This institute for e-reseach runs a research programme with as focal theme new scholarly practices and novel sorts of knowledge acquisition that are facilitated by new media and information technology. The kind of innovative historical investigations enabled by large collections of personal narratives, and in particular those available in multimedia formats, are the basis for a research collaboration with the sister faculty Erasmus School of History, Culture & Communication .
