City Walk with Far Too Close

In the podcast Far Too CloseExternal link four (former) UvA students explore the colonial past of six buildings in Amsterdam's University Quarter. What stories reside in the buildings where we attend lectures and go to study? And what should we do about a past that may feel far away, but is actually still very close? During the Week Against Racism, you can set off on a walk with two Far Too Close guides, who will take you on a quest to discover the colonial history of the places where UvA students and staff work and study every day.
