The Dual Master's programme Archival and Information Studies focus on Archival Studies, treating contemporary archival theory and practice, training archivists in the science and craft of record-keeping, and providing insight into the archives of the past and future.

Archiving the everyday

The computational turn has fundamentally changed the way people and institutions produce, use, collect, share, and keep information. Data is the vital fuel for a growing number of applications in daily life and has become a fundamental human resource, similar to food, energy or transportation. The result is a fragmentation and personalisation of data-creation and data-use.

What are the implications of these developments for information management and record-keeping? How can we keep relevant information accessible in time? How does the data-driven culture transform societal values such as transparency and privacy? And how do we keep the archives of the past connected to the needs of the present? These questions are central to the Dual Master in Archival Studies.... [-]

The Master's in Literature, Culture and Society draws on the fields of literature, cultural studies and intellectual history, and provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to specialise in a major European literature in its broader intercultural contexts.

Literature and culture from a global European perspective

For centuries, literature has played – and continues to play – an important role in our understanding of how society is continuously being shaped and re-shaped. Literature is often associated with intellectual training and skills, Bildung, and (global) citizenship. In this programme, you are encouraged to creatively explore the field of European literature and culture in a broad sense. We address the role these pieces of literature play in increasingly globalised and transcultural contexts. Europe, in this sense, is not just a designated continent, but rather a specific lens on a set of global relations.... [-]

Our new and dynamic digital age

Information, data, media and digitality have become ubiquitous features of our social, economic and political lives. All the world is connected and media and computational technologies have already converged into a small device we carry around in our pockets. News is sampled rather than broadcast. We converse through snippets of information shared via junk radio bands to a global clique. This digital hyper-archive of information is not only a resource to be accessed and consulted, but, as never before, the constituent data for new questions, new enquiries and new intrusions into our social and political lives. The methods of the previous age, methods of representation and fixed association, no longer apply to this new, dynamic, digital information world.... [-]
