What I do
I am an early career academic historian and anthropologist. I am interested in a broad range of topics such as; identity, citizenship and equality, historical representations and digital methods. I have a diverse educational background and I am internationally oriented; I conducted research on rural to urban migration in Mbarara, Uganda and obtained education from the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy.
Currently, I am working at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam (NL) as a PhD-researcher. I work within the project Sport and Nation and my doctoral research is on Football Fandom and Holocaust Education. I am interested in football-related antisemitic discourse(s) in on- and offline spaces. My research also involves educational programmes initiated to prevent discrimination and antisemitism in football stadiums in the Netherlands. I also teach Global History, a course during which first year history students are introduced to the history of the world from 1500 to present. The political, economic and cultural interaction between the non-Western history and Western history is central to this course. Next to my academic work I am also involved with Changing the Chants a European project that aims to combat antisemitism in football through informal education and law-enforcement.
I am writing an article on online hate speech and football-related antisemitism.
I am trying to learn Python.
I have visited 29 countries on 4 different continents and lived in 5 different countries.
I am currently based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
