Past worlds, present questions, possible futures

About Global Heritage Lab

The Global Heritage Lab at the University of Excellence of Bonn emerges as a central hub for heritage and museum-related research and operates as a transdisciplinary laboratory hosted by the TRA Present Pasts. It is a space for experimentation, transcultural dialogue, and reimagining the intersection of past, present, and future. The Global Heritage Lab’s emphasis extends to transregional and transcontinental perspectives, integrating indigenous knowledge and multi-vocal viewpoints. Our team operates across continents, fostering a rich community of researchers and practitioners in Africa, the Americas, especially Latin America, Europe and potentially Asia and the Pacific.
