CREATE is short for Creative Amsterdam: An E-Humanities Perspective, a research programme established in 2014. We are based at the department of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam.

Our project integrates research on historical cultural industries and research in the field of digital humanities. We investigate how cultural industries have shaped Amsterdam’s unique position in a European and global context, from the seventeenth century until the present day.

The projects are organised by theme, click here for an overview of ALL PROJECTS
