Heritage Research Group
We are a multi-campus research group of lecturers and postgraduate students, based in Atlantic Technological University, Ireland.
Our group has wide-ranging expertise in the principal forms of cultural heritage – intangible, tangible, natural, and digital. We are particularly interested in the practical application and use of the past in the present and future.
We also conduct research in collaboration with various partners and clients in the cultural heritage, historic environment and tourism industries/sectors. Research questions are explored with a critical mind and a creative spirit.
We are committed to the provision of postgraduate education for those who wish to train for rewarding careers in the above-mentioned areas. Amongst our members are postgraduate students, who are conducting research for their MA and PhD theses.
In our explorations of cultural heritage, we are committed to servicing the research needs of agencies, citizens, civic bodies, communities, government departments, heritage businesses, local authorities, museums, professional bodies, and visitor attractions.
