Lectors Hester Dibbits and Riemer Knoop are involved in two main lines of research. In the context of emotion networking Dibbits works on a method to help professionals, school children, students and others to acquire ‘heritage wisdom’ in museums, classrooms, and neighbourhoods as well as on the internet. Within the Street Values project Knoop provides insight into the processes that are active at the intersection of heritage, the design of (public) space, and the living environment.
