I completed a BA Scandinavian Languages and Cultures and a MA Medieval literary studies at the University of Groningen. During my studies I concentrated on cultural transfer and translation theory in late medieval Western Europe (most notably from Latin to Icelandic).
As a PhD-candidate I collaborate with Mario Damen and Kim Overlaet in the NWO-funded project Imagining a territory. Constructions and representations of late medieval Brabant. The starting point for this project is the hypothesis that territory was defined and constructed by different spatial practices and networks. My main question is how the territory of the late medieval duchy of Brabant was envisaged and constructed by the prince, the nobles, and the urban elites.
