Profile of Ms Ankie Petersen Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Ankie Petersen

Heritage & Urban Design MA student, interested in the development of the historic urban landscape and its social, cultural and political implications

General research interests

My general research interests include urban history, architecture and cultural heritage, together combined in the historic urban landscape. Over the past decades, urban planning and cultural heritage management have become increasingly connected in policy and practice. I examine the relationship between the two with a focus on environmental sustainability and the development towards a sustainable heritage management discourse.
