Norwegian Chapter (ACHS-Norway)

At a meeting in 2015 with several research environments in Norway a desire to establish a national network for heritage research was addressed. The national chapter that has been recently established at ACHS will provide information on ongoing activities, but also promote and facilitate the seminars, symposiums or workshops on heritage issues that engage researchers in Norway. Through the Norwegian Chapter of ACHS, the researchers in the heritage field can address specific issues relevant to Norwegian everyday life and politics, for example, issues on migration and notions of Norwegian national heritage or other local or national aspects of heritage in the light of Nordic and international trends. The national network will provide an opportunity for addressing issues concerning multidisciplinary research, strengthen networking between research groups in Norway and beyond, discuss future challenges for heritage, and convey and create dialogue between heritage researchers, the Norwegian management sector and the public.
