What I do
I am an early career academic historian and anthropologist. I am interested in a broad range of topics such as; identity, discrimination, historical representations, popular culture, migration and sports. 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 as a PhD-candidate at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. I work within the project Sport and Nation and my PhD-research is on Football Fandom and Holocaust Education. The research 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.
