Barend van Heusden, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

Barend van Heusden holds the chair of Culture and Cognition, with special reference to the Arts, in the Department of Arts, Culture and Media Studies at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. He is Director for the Humanities and member of the Board of Education of the University College Groningen (UCG), and advisor for culture education to the Minister of Science and Culture in Lower Saxony (D). Van Heusden has published articles and books in the fields of literary and culture theory, semiotics and cognition, as well as arts and culture education. From 2009 till 2014 he supervised the Dutch national project ‘Culture in the Mirror: toward a curriculum for culture education’. In this project, culture education was approached from a cognitive-semiotic perspective. A framework was developed that allows schools and teachers to design a culture curriculum tailored to the pupils' development and culture. In 2011, the Flemish government joined the project.
