A Virtual Tour of World Heritage Sites in less than 30 days Part III – Summer 2021

Birgitta Hoffmann

World Heritage Sites represent the best and most important cultural sites from the beginning of Human existence to nearly the Modern era.

This summer we are putting together a virtual tour of a selection of the 908 cultural World Heritage Sites, introducing them and discussing why they should be considered important.

The lectures will be organised in thematic groups of five and will be spread over several weekdays, depending on the lecturers presenting.

Format: Each date will consist of a 40- 50min lecture, 10 minutes break and a shorter lecture of c. 30 minutes 15-20 minutes discussion.

We hope to add further lectures as the summer progresses.

All lectures can be booked individually or as part of a set of 5.
