ASH is firmly rooted in contemporary society. Current political debate, societal challenges and cultural developments inform, or contribute to, our research agenda. Set in the vibrant city of Amsterdam, ASH maintains strong ties with museums, heritage institutions, libraries and modern media.

ASH is a regular contributor to the Amsterdam debate centre SPUI 25 and the educational programme of the Illustere School


One of ASH’s priorities in the coming years is to increase the exposure of ASH research results to the wider public, private and cultural sectors, as well as the general public. Some examples of successful partnerships between ASH researchers and external parties are presented here:

The introduction of the ASH Valorisation Award (see below) in 2014 has further helped to highlight and honour outreach initiatives.
