Lecture NIT Urban Heritage Lab: Discovering and Documenting Urban Archaeological Remains

Güliz Bilgin Altınöz (Middle East Technical University) & Jeroen Bouwmeester (RCE, Netherlands National Heritage Agency)


22 Sep 16:00 - 18:00

The first public lecture of NIT Urban Heritage Lab|Archaeological Heritage and Liveable Cities Course focuses on discovering and documenting archaeological remains in urban contexts. Güliz Bilgin Altınöz (Middle East Technical University) and Jeroen Bouwmeester (RCE, Netherlands National Heritage Agency) will discuss theoretical and methodological applications in discovering and documenting multi-layered heritage in Türkiye and in the Netherlands.

NIT Urban Heritage Lab is an initiative of the Netherlands Institute in Turkey that investigates the role of tangible and intangible cultural heritage in achieving inclusive, circular, and sustainable cities. The third edition of the Urban Heritage Lab Autumn Course is organized by the Netherlands Institute in Turkey (NIT), in collaboration with Middle East Technical University (METU), Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE), LDE Centre for Global Heritage and Development, and with the support of the Netherlands Consulate-General in Istanbul. The course will spotlight archaeological heritage in urban contexts and explore a series of topical issues, including: How can archaeological heritage in urban settings contribute to presenting the stories of a city and its inhabitants? Given the nature of archaeological remains (often underfoot, fragmented, limited to small exposures, disconnected from present-day communities, obstructing rather than enabling present-day urban movement), what are the specific challenges of archaeological heritage in this respect? What are the best strategies for preservation, display and public engagement? Can archaeological heritage be a driver for sustainable urban development in a time of climate crisis?

Between September 22 and December 15 (except for October 20 and 27), NIT offers a series of public webinars on Archaeological Heritage and Liveable Cities from academics and professionals every Friday from 16.00-18.00 (Turkish time).
