The Oxford University Heritage Network brings together researchers and heritage professionals to address the big challenges facing heritage locally, nationally and internationally.
We achieve this through seminars and events, and by engaging with policy makers in government, international organisations, the private sector and the NGO community.
The Oxford University Heritage Network is highly interdisciplinary and includes researchers from across the four academic divisions at Oxford: Humanities; Social Sciences; Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences; and Gardens, Libraries and Museums.
We work with a range of external partners in the UK and international heritage sector and welcome approaches from organisations and institutions eager to collaborate with University of Oxford researchers.
The Oxford University Heritage Network is supported by the John Fell Fund.
Our areas of focus
The Oxford University Heritage Network has four strategic aims:
1. Support successful collaborative grant applications.
2. Encourage wider participation in heritage research from scientists.
3. Support agenda-setting interdisciplinary critical debate and discussion of heritage.
4. Provide a focus for the University’s engagement with heritage partners in the UK and overseas.
OUHN aims to build an interdisciplinary community of professionals, students, and researchers (from undergraduate to senior professors) who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to engage effectively with a wide range of partners in the UK and overseas.
