About ACGS

The ACGS is part of the Cultural Transformations and Globalisation Research Priority Area. The Research Priority Areas represent the very best the University of Amsterdam has to offer in terms of research. They are also areas in which the UvA is a leader worldwide. A quarter of all research conducted at the UvA is organised within these priority areas.

The ACGS is organised into four interlocking research programmes: mobility, sustainability, aesthetics and connectivity. Although each research programme pursues a specific set of thematic, theoretical, and topical concerns related to globalisation, the Research Priority Area is specifically designed to stimulate exchange and collaboration between the research programmes in the form of joint projects, conferences, publications, and grant applications.
