Sources of pleasure

Material sources spread over a wide range of archives, museums and private collections. For our subject of pleasure culture in port cities, we gather and organise knowledge on this fragmented transnational heritage. Subsequently, we are going to feed this information into a web-based database, which will first serve us as a working tool for creating the Pleasurescapes-exhibition. Afterwards, we will publish key parts of the database to make our research sutainable and accessible for other scholars and curators.
